Hi!!! My name is Rica Stephenson, as of right now I am 5,874 days old (16). My birthday is the last day of the year and I am the co-founder of Freedom for Teens! (Jesus is the other founder). I am half Filipino half Australian. I was born and raised in Queensland, Australia. My family and I love water skiing and motocross. My favourite season is Summer and my favourite colour is none because I keep changing my mind and can’t decide. My passion is singing. I absolutely love it!!I have a YouTube channel called Absolute Worship you should definitely check it out 😉
So now you know a little bit about me you might be wondering “What is Freedom for Teens?” “Why am I doing this?” Well, the reason why I wanna do this is because:
1. I’m doing this for God
2. I’m doing this for the people, for you.
For all the other teens around the world. And I wanna connect with you, I wanna engage with you. I wanna build family with you. Because we are the next generation. We are the future. We are the generation of tomorrow, of next week, or next year, or the next 10 years! We are the next adults, and we have an influence! Whether it’s a small influence or a big influence. Why not we influence the world for good and for God.Instead or worldly things! Like, social media is so so big! I could text someone that is in another country, and I could post things on social media and people all around the world could see it! As teenagers, we have a bigger influence than we think. Why not we use that for God. For good and for God. So I just showed you why I do this. Now I’m gonna show you what is Freedom for Teens? So it’s kinda like a brand sorta…
So it’s a brand for helping people find who they are with God and with themselves. To find their identity to find who they really are, and in that they will find freedom. Because God made us SO perfectly, he made us in his own image. And if we stray, and dwell in worldly things… When we come back we don’t know who we are and we lose our identity, we lose who we are and we lose… freedom. Because when we are in all the other not so good stuff, we lose who we are and lose freedom. We try to find freedom in other things but we never really find it, but when we come back and find who we really are, that’s when we find real freedom. Because we find our identity! We find who we are with God! And that’s just so amazing. And yeah, that’s pretty much what Freedom for Teens is, and I hope you really wanna join the family.
