Hello, my name is Kennedy Brown. I’m 16 years old, living in Grand Island. Dancing to 8 counts, having 8 siblings, and playing 5 instruments, my life is a little crazy. Aspiring to tickle the ivories like Mozart, I've already composed my own song on the piano. When I’m not working on my music, I’m jamming to K-pop and watching anime with my twin sister. From twirling the flags on the football field to having the highest state math score, you could say math and music rule my life. My plan and goal for the future is to study languages, travel, and learn about different cultures.
I use my platform to raise awareness about the trials and tribulations seen within the LGBTQ+ and trans communities, the different ethnic communities and religions, as well as the trials and tribulations of women. I would extend my outreach to speak against the active discrimination, hostility, and bullying that goes unnoticed in the lives of our family, friends, neighbors and colleagues.
We could discard our prejudices and come together as a community to make our world beautiful by saving the planet and continuing to work on ourselves so we can become better and more open minded. We are the ones who can, through our own examples, prove that there are people in this world who still care.

When I am not working cows with my dad, leading my feeder calves, or buying cows to expand my own personal herd, you can find me bringing awareness and research to 18q deletion syndrome. My brother has been impacted by this rare genetic disorder. I have seen first-hand the need for advocacy for people with disabilities. Because of this I started a charity called Go Blue for 18q, raising over $5000 in the last two years!
