Elayna Marie Hasty is the founder of G.A.B. Girls (Girls Against Bullying Girls)....
At 9 years old I came up with the idea of G.A.B. Girls. My mom has always told me that even one person can make a positive difference and that's what is one of my main goals. I have been active as a volunteer in several organizations since I was 6 years old. In addition to GAB Girls, my local animal shelter is very important to me.
I am a typical energetic girly girl who enjoys cheerleading, writing in my journal and being with my family. I have always liked and wanted to help others. Since I was 6 years old I wanted to be a "pet doctor" and now I know that it is called a veterinarian. Maybe someday I'll be a "people doctor" but whichever I become I know I'll be helping animals or people that need help. Like God says in Ephesians 4:13, I CAN do ALL things through Christ which strengthens me!
