Bring more positivity into the world, especially into social media.
Chase Marvil joined social media in 2013 and the negativity that he saw on it lead him to create The Inspiring Project while he was still in high school. He wanted his page to be a place where people boosted each other up. Eventually, Chase would receive messages from troubled teens who were being bullied in real life and online and just by talking to him, they felt better about their life and situation. This made Chase realize The Inspiring Project was needed more than ever. Even though Chase is now out of high school, he wants to expand the project throughout his school district so that teens do not feel so alone.
