On Wednesday, during our True Star Podcast after school program at BBF, Illinois State Representative Yolanda Morris surprised our teens with a visit. During her stop, she allowed the teens to ask her questions about her role as a representative of the 9th district and ways teens can get involved in helping to better their community.

Rep. Morris is a Certified Nurse who recently became the 9th District State Representative in September of 2023. She says her mission while in office is to build a stronger North Lawndale.

“Building stronger and more united communities is not a task for one, but a collective effort. Together, we are unstoppable!” she says.
