FCAN’s BASUAH Project has received many questions since the beginning of the blog. BASUAH-certified Peer Ambassadors have gathered together to answer your questions! The reason they have become BASUAH ambassadors are shown below:
1. Kids need to be more educated from a young age: there is not enough education in elementary and middle schools, but kids are experimenting earlier and earlier nowadays.
2. People need to be aware and receive HIV/STI/general sexual education outside of schools. They need to hear from their parents and from forums like this one.
3. There is a lot of false information out there about HIV and STI’s, and the BASUAH Ambassadors hope to change that.
4. People need to ‘strap up’ (use protection) and learn more about themselves and their health before deciding to have sex with someone else.
The Ambassadors also would like to share with you their nicknames and a little about themselves:
•Queen B: Age 40. Likes to help people take care of themselves, and especially likes talking to teens.
•BritBrat: Age 21. She is very talkative and likes to make people laugh.
•’She: Age 21. She describes herself as ‘very open-minded.’
•Young&Powerful: Age 20. She likes to have fun.
The Ambassadors are looking forward to answering your questions! If you’d like to become an Ambassador, contact FCAN at 312-855-9000. If you have a question you’d like to submit, use our ask box on our blog or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
