Be the Star You Are!® 501 c3 charity presents: Express Yourself Teens With the on-air Be the Star You Are!® youth reporters.

Taylor Swift, John Green, You Tube, Table 58. What do they have in common? Bold fashion styles. Beauty must-haves. The latest songs. The best new gadgets. Let’s face it: trying to stay informed about all the ever-evolving teen trends can be exhausting! Worry not, though – Express Yourself!™ is here to help keep you “in the know”! Under-recognized for their influence in the teen trend world, books are a huge part of young people’s lives, and they have the potential to catch on like wildfire, particularly when they become movies! Think Harry Potter, Twilight, the Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars. Whether we’re driving down the highways blaring the latest tunes from inside our cars, or whether we’re sitting in our rooms rocking out to beats from our iPods, music constitutes one of teens’ most valued art forms. It’s hard to imagine what our lives would be like without the solace of music and the influence of our favorite singers. Book It! Reporter, Courtney Cheng chats with our hosts, Henna Hundal and Asya Gonzalez about the importance and relevance of books and music for teens. DStar of Bubble Guppies on Nick Jr, twelve year old Grace Kaufman talks about her new Amazon series, “Table 58” about a geeky group of unpopular kids who occupy the odd table in the lunchroom, made up of kids from all different cliques. Whatever trends are in or out, the Express Yourself!™ stars will keep you informed.

Guest: Grace Kaufman
Grace Kaufman is close to turning 12, she is not only an actress but also a singer and dancer. She has a wide range of talents and expresses them on the projects she works on, definitely earning her a spot to be the next big star in Hollywood. She had a great year with her work in 2014 as she starred in television shows and movies, her amazing performances left the fans wanting more. But not to worry! She’s got more in store for 2015 as she gets ready for her premier of the Amazon pilot “Table 58”. Grace’s peers can also hear her belt out tunes as the fun, bright, crazy and opinionated ‘Deema’ on the hit animated Nick Jr. series “Bubble Guppies.” The anticipated TNT series “The Last Ship” is set to air for the second season Summer 2015 on the network where Grace will portray Eric Dane’s daughter in the futurist action adventure series produced by Michael Bay.
