After a high school freshman was originally stopped from forming a Christian club at her school, officials have changed course and reversed their decision.

Sometimes feeling alone as a Christ follower, Daniela Barca, 14, chose to start the club at Ketcham High School in Wappingers Falls, New York.

At first, school leaders denied her request on the grounds it was “religious” and “not generic enough,” according to Fox News.

Once Barca gained support First Liberty Institute (FLI), the largest legal organization in the nation that helps defend religious liberty, school leaders changed its course.

“Our victory on behalf of Daniela should embolden and encourage students nationwide, and it gives us great hope for a bright future,” FLI wrote on its website.

In a video on FLI’s site, Barca shares that it’s important to stand strong for one’s faith.

Barca has since formed a chapter of Students Standing Strong, a network of student-led Christian clubs found in 12 states.

Supporters on social media have offered words of encouragement, as well as members from other Students Standing Strong clubs.

Barca also appeared on “Fox & Friends,” where co-host Pete Hegseth praised her fight.

“Daniela, you don’t know it, but you’re a culture warrior and you’re in ninth grade and it’s awesome! Thank you so much for standing up for your beliefs,” Hegseth told her.
