I think the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis has changed me for the good. When I started at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis I didn't do well in school and had trouble getting arguments. I started going when I was in 8th grade and was afraid I wouldn't make it to high school. A friend brought me along to the club one day and it changed me forever. Everyone was so nice and positive it was such a change to what I was used to. Thanks to the education help they provide I not only finished high school but also finished college. I will be starting my Master's degree in Aug and I owe it all to Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis
