A Teen Reporter’s View of FAAN Teen Summit

in Managing Allergies, Your Stories

To a question about the effects of peer pressure, Brian, 12, explained: “People didn’t come to my birthday party. Apparently the parents thought that I was ‘different’ and had food allergies, and so since I was ‘different’ they wouldn’t allow their child to come. It was really unfair.”

What I appreciated the most was the chance to share experiences, solutions, and funny stories with other teens that get food allergies. As always with the FAAN Teen Summit, many new friendships were made through discussion, debate, and of course, dancing!

Next year, FAAN plans to hold the Teen Summit in Washington D.C. again, around mid-November, so if you want to attend, please sign-up when the opportunity arises!
