My name is Alex Naliath. I am a senior from Massachusetts who has been a part of the Herren Project for 4 years now. I am honored to serve as the President of the National Youth Ambassador Board and the Herren Project club at my school! My goal this year is to continue to use my experience and voice to help those struggling with substance abuse and mental health around the country. I think the best way to do that is by starting in my own community. This past year, I won a grant which only 13 schools across the country were selected for which gave us access to the First Day Film by Chris Herren as well as a curriculum that will be implemented into our school education this academic year. Also by running fundraisers and activities at my school, I was able to raise thousands of dollars for Herren Project. One fun fact about me is that I am a left-footed soccer player.
