‘Find your because’


Guest speaker Josh Drean shares an anti-bullying message about empathy to students at Ortega Middle School in Alamosa on Friday. He told them to keep your head on, know your audience by making sure everyone is having a good time and to be a hero by standing up for others.


Josh Drean beatboxes with a harmonica to show kids that they can use something that gets them bullied and highlight it to break down stereotypes. His speech reminded kids that they represent their school, family and friends and that they can lead a positive lifestyle by “finding your because,” or purpose.
