The unassuming teenager, slim and soft-spoken, took the stage. Suddenly, a sweet, smooth jazz rendition of “The Children are Our Future,” filled the Houston Junior League ballroom during the “At the Heart of Families Luncheon.”
Kymora Anderson, 16, is that teenager. She has been part of the Harris County Resources for Children and Adults Youth On B.O.A.R.D. for three years, but it is just one item on her growing pre-collegiate resume.
The high school junior sings all genres. She said Youth On B.O.A.R.D. gave her the confidence to pursue and thrive in other areas of her life. She was instrumental in the youth’s anti-stigma workshop and another improving youth and adult relationships.
Youth On B.O.A.R.D. encourages teenagers to have a voice. By all appearances, Anderson has found hers.
