Congratulations to Miki Brauch !!
TAA of Greater NY State would like to announce our selection for Youth Ambassador for 2018, Miki Brauch. Miki is the daughter of Robert and Midori Brauch and is a 16 year old junior at Williamsville East High School outside of Buffalo. She will travel to Washington, DC with her mom in February to attend the TAA Youth Ambassador Training Day. She will also be spending a day at Capitol Hill with all of this year’s Youth Ambassadors from across the country to lobby for causes that affect all persons with TS. We had several excellent applicants this year, which made the committee’s choice very difficult. We thank all of the youth who applied.
Miki has attended our chapter’s Camp Ticapalooza for several years, has spoken on youth panels for chapter workshops, maintains a high academic record and is a great advocate for herself and others. We are very proud of Miki and know that she will do a fantastic job representing our chapter in DC and beyond.
