If you have not met, District 10 Dallas Youth Commission & Mayor's Rising Star Council student Barbara Raygoza, you need to. This girl is a kind and gentle spirit, full of strength and grit. Having met her a few years back, I am incredibly proud at how much she has grown, but more proud of how vulnerable she is in sharing her story - to encourage others.

--------

Her critical thinking skills and ability to listen separate Barbara from teens and even adults, McGough says. It’s why, during a trip to Washington D.C., he pointed to a podium at Capitol Hill and told Barbara she’ll give speeches there one day.

“She just has grit,” Adam McGough says. “Whatever it is, you just know she’s going to be able to deal with the situation and thrive in it. I trust her. I trust her judgment.”

Had a great time meeting with members of the Dallas Youth Commission yesterday at our nation's capital.
Hello. This a free anti-bullying discussion and activity. We will have a fellowship meal following the program. Lots of fun while addressing real life issues for not only youth but adults too.
