A Teen in My Life Who is Making a Difference

Neutrogena Wave for Change Teens

As a Glam Correspondent, I was asked to write about a teen that I knew was out making a difference in her community. One person came to mind: my cousin Lauren.

She’s going to be a junior in high school next year and for the third summer in a row, she will be coaching youngsters in a Victory Soccer Camp! Lauren has been playing soccer since she was a youngster herself, and has grown into an amazing player. Hoping to make her varsity team this coming school year, she will be sharing her knowledge, time, and skills with kids ages 5 to 6 during a three week camp at the Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan. Lauren’s old soccer coach got her and some of her teammates involved with this soccer camp and she says her “favorite part is getting to know the kids and helping them develop their skills.” Giving up valuable pool time to any other teenage girl, Lauren can’t wait to get out on the field and show these kids how it’s done!

Lauren is making a change in children’s lives this summer, and Neutrogena® says you can too! Neutrogena’s Wave for Change® campaign is able to provide hope for kids through education, the protection of our planet, and rebuilding lives around the world with our help! Video’s on the Wave for Change® website feature Brand Ambassador Hayden Panettierre getting women around the country pumped up for the cause! For every video view counted, Neutrogena® will donate $1 to Global Giving, a program dedicated to improving the lives of children around the world.

I love to know it first, try it first and share it with you first! . At “First Class Fashionista”, we believe fashion is a lifestyle and, because at FCF we are beauty and brains, I believe being a true “Fashionista” doesn’t mean you have to spend first class money to travel first class, stay in 5 star hotels, dine at the finest restaurants or even rock the latest look of the trendsetting fashionista. I'm on a mission to inform and inspire. As always, thanks for reading. And, yes, sharing is caring--We appreciate you.
