Channel Kindness Award: Taylor Parker, IUPUI Student and Peacemaker

"People without a platform want to help but they don’t know how to do so efficiently and when people with a platform use their voice to encourage others to give back, it creates immense change."

Taylor Parker, a Lady Gaga fan and UIPUI student, was named the winner of Indianapolis's Channel Kindness Award (a part of Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation), which recognizes young people across the country for bringing kindness to their community. In Taylor's case, she organized a clothing and feminine hygiene product drive for LGBTQ students at her college.

"I don’t have enough adjectives to explain how I feel about this."
