Peer Educator: Markia

Markia

2015 Peer Educator

My name is Markia. I live in San Bernardino, California. I am 17 years of age and currently a senior in high school. My hobbies are doing hair, dancing and spending quality time with family and friends.

I am excited to work with TeenSource because helping others is a great way to give back and that's what I am able to do as a Peer Educator. I also feel like having "The Talk" about sex and STDS with your parents or any adult in general is a little awkward to many teens, and having Peer Educators makes the situation more comfortable for teens to reach out and actually get the information they need without getting discouraged about their actions or questions.

Awareness will always be a big thing to me and I am glad that I can share the things that I know and will learn along the way with other teens.
