“Terra Gay is very innovative and a natural leader. Several years ago, she envisioned and brought together a group of like-minded individuals to develop and implement what became the "Be the Change Youth Summit". Due to the success of the first youth summit held in Atlanta, a few volunteers took the blueprint and replicated the summit in other cities. The "Be the Change Youth Summit Atlanta" ran for 3 years while growing in participation each year”
