For Angela Vitellaro, Aflac CSR Hero and an independent agent licensed to sell Aflac products, compassion is key when it comes to her role as a volunteer coach with the youth development program Girls on the Run of New Jersey East. At a time when young girls are often confronting issues like cyberbullying and low self-esteem, Angela coaches her team to overcome these issues by setting running goals and participating in service projects.

"The main things we try to get these girls to take away from the program are confidence, competence, self-esteem, goal-setting and achievement. We want them to value themselves and be strong going out into the world,” Angela says.
