Tyler Brazier


At nine years old, Tyler Brazier already holds two ambassadorships. He is an ambassador for Westdale Heights Academic Magnet (WHAM), meaning he represents his school to prospective parents and visitors.

A rising fifth grader, Tyler is the youngest Flipgrid Ambassador of Student Voice in the country. Flipgrid is a video discussion platform created by Microsoft. Tyler first started using Flipgrid as an alternative to creating his own YouTube channel, about which his parents, Wiley and Tirza, had reservations.

Part of Tyler’s role is to spread Flipgrid fever. Tyler gave a presentation at the Magnet Schools of the Mid-South Conference, sharing what he knows about Flipgrid with teachers and administrators from across the region.

“In Houston, I presented for the first time, and I was a little nervous,” Tyler says. “I talked about Flipgrid and what it’s used for.”

Tyler uses Flipgrid to make book report videos and vlogs, which he creates on his computer and cell phone. Flipgrid can also be used for students who may not want to talk in class, giving them a way to participate in discussions via videos.

Tyler has given other presentations, including the Power Up! Conference. His dad says WHAM principal Catasha Edwards and others have reached out wanting Tyler’s help, so they’re working on logistics to teach the teachers how to use this technology.

Tyler is also a basketball player, likes playing video games with his brother, Wiley, and is on the honor roll. Tyler is definitely one amazing kid.
