Rendle Mones, Hawaii

Kauai High School | Lihue, HI

What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

When suicide kills more Americans each year than car crashes, Rendle Mones wants the next president to prioritize mental health.
