Hello. My name is Maizy Baldwin. My little sister McKyla and I are best friends. I have always tried to protect her since the day she was born but on September 18, 2019..I Was holding her hand walking to the bus stop in the morning when my little sister got hit by a distracted driver. I watched in horror while her shoe flew off of her and her body was flung up onto the hood of the car and then flew off onto the ground. She had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital with a TBI. Luckily she is ok now? I believe in miracles, prayers and that I can find purpose for what happened. Every time I get in the car I see drivers texting or on their phones Because of this I developed a platform.
“When you drive distracted, We are ALL impacted”
Believe me when I say It hurts everyone involved. The person hit, their siblings, their parents, the driver, the drivers family etc. and is completely preventable. I'm working with Dr Kelly Browning from Impact teen drivers and local police officers to save lives through bringing attention to this subject by education and presentations at schools, even elementary schools. It’s never to early to learn to be a non-distracting passenger or to speak up if you feel you are in any danger.
