Our Life of a Rock Star teen contributor, was thrilled to take part in a Born This Way Foundation assembly.
Teens were asked to listen to the lyrics of Born This Way by Lady Gaga and think though what it means to be able to express themselves in a safe environment, be a part of the change, and impact their local community. They all rocked cool black Born This Way Foundation tee-shirts and left the workshop feeling confident and more aware.
