Our Vision

If teenagers can share freely and safely with peers the difficulties they go through, if they can safely voice the challenges they face, there is no more stigma nor taboo and it allows them to believe in themselves and in their future.

Our Mission

To create and support a safe and trustworthy environment where we, as teenagers, know that whatever challenge we struggle with, Give Us The Floor is THE community where we will find peers that have faced or are facing the same challenges. Teens encourage, support each other, and share wisdom. We share common challenges and we are not alone.

Isabella
Isabella is a true nerd, who loves math and science. She is an avid reader and the best taste-tester. Isabella is an active member of her community and works to lift up the voices of her fellow teens, through leadership positions within her school’s Student Advisory Council, the North Carolina Association of Teen Democrats, and the North Carolina Virtual Public School’s Peer Tutoring Center. She hopes her work with Give Us The Floor will help show adults, and teens themselves, how capable and passionate young people can be. We are the future, after all.

Lindsey
I’m Lindsey Luis, 17-year-old from Vancouver, Washington state. I have a strong passion for social justice and one day want to create a change in this world that will live on far beyond myself! I believe there are many issues in this world that need to be changed, which is what led me to become involved in politics and political activism. I hope to one day become the first Mexican-American female president! I’ve joined GUTF because I want to learn more from people. I want to one day be able to represent those who have little to no representation in society and Give Us The Floor gives me that opportunity which I have been searching for.

Mohammed
Hi, my name is Mohammed and I'm from Texas and I'm your regular band playing 16 year old. I love sports particularly tennis, and I'm a total anime and movie lover. I love computer science it's my true passion and I love to read, especially Edgar Allen Poe or Irving Washington. I'm currently working towards my bachelors and trying to keep up with my band. I joined Give Us The Floor because I've always suffered from extreme academic stress and anxiety; it was so bad that I would become very depressed and would just get stuck but a friend helped me get out of that shadow and now I want to be that friend to others too regardless if their situation is similar to mines or not.

Sophia
My name is Sophia. I am 16 years old and I will be a senior this coming fall. I love music, animals, and writing. My main goal in life is to constantly learn new things. After high school, I hope to attend Erie Community College for my Associate's in Business Administration, then Mount Aloysius for my MBA (Masters in Business Administration) and my Bachelors in American Sign Language. After that, I would like to pursue my Masters and doctorate in  Sign Language Interpretation and Clinical Research from Gallaudet University. I originally joined GUTF to just write a few articles here and there that I wouldn't normally have the chance to write for the other organizations, but then I got into one of the supportive group chats and now I want to be involved in any way I can. I am so grateful for this opportunity as an intern and I can't wait to create some great work for everyone!
