What I’ve learned
In the 6th grade, I was afraid of both people, and especially, failure. Girls Inc. gave me a sense of power I did not know I was capable of …Girls Inc. has truly empowered me. I went from a girl filled with self-doubt, negative thoughts and daily cry sessions to an independent young woman. I trust in the fact that I have the right to an opinion. Girls Inc. taught me that no one can take my voice away. Through Girls Inc. I have taken a leadership role and work to help those who feel like the 6th grade version of me to project their voices loudly and clearly. Girls Inc. has given me a safe haven and toolbox filled with essentials for life. I have gained unbelievable confidence, and I know I am strong, smart, bold and beautiful."
