SAY Board Member featured in the Press Democrat
SAY Board Member Allyson Ahlstrom was featured in the Press Democrat recently, in an article about her own non-profit organization, Threads for Teens.
[quote]Allyson Ahlstrom, a slight, curly-haired incoming sophomore with a penchant for designer labels, thinks big.
The 15-year-old Ursuline student stood Wednesday at the grand opening of Threads for Teens, a boutique filled with new, donated designer clothes for teen girls who don’t have the allowances or family support to go back-to-school shopping.
“It’s a self-esteem booster,” Allyson said, explaining why it’s important for young people to dress well. “Bullying can happen if someone is dressed differently, so I wanted to stop it in my own small way.”[/quote]
