Donna Myrow, Founder of LAYouth, www.layouth.org
Thank you to all the wonderful women who shared their special moments about their girlfriends and sisters.
"My name is Donna Myrow, and I help students find and share their voice." Donna Myrow has spent the past 25 years passionately running L.A. Youth, a newspaper written and edited by teenagers for teenagers. Donna remembers the exact day her vision for L.A. Youth came to her: January 11th, 1988. “I was driving listening to the radio and I heard that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down press rights giving school administrators the power to censor student newspapers. I decided at that moment to start a newspaper.”
