My name is Lillian Izquierdo and I participated in this program during the summer of '08. It was one of the best experiences of my life. There was so much about politics that I had never known before. I met so many incredible girls my age but even more incredible were the women who ran the program. They inspired me to go after my dreams and what I wanted no matter the obstacles that I faced. My favorite part of the experience was learning more about speech writing, something that I learned I enjoy very much. I would definitely reccomend other teenage girls to apply for this program.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

myself and the other young women that participated in it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the women who run the program. I've never met so many women who care so much. I remember my first day in Washington D.C., it struck me how much they cared without having ever met me before. They were so kind and inspirational throughout the entire program and even after it was done they tried to keep in contact with all of us.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

absolutely wonderful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make the importance of young women in politics known all around America in many different creative ways.

Running Start has done more than inspire me to consider political office as a career - it has insured that I enthusiastically support young female candidates and has gotten me involved in politics on many levels. I have been lucky enough to find a voice through Running Start and am constantly amazed by the enthusiasm of the Director, volunteers and participants. I am encouraged for our future by what I see at Advisory Board Meetings, fundraisers and programs.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Running Start really opened my eyes to the small amount of women in politics compared to the amount of women in the United States. Originally I was not that interested in politics but after this 4 day program I am defintley considering this career knowing that I can make a difference in the world. Listening to speakers, networking with proffesionals in their political field, and creating our my campaign has influenced the way I look at our governement and what career I might want to pursue. I would recommend this program to anyone not only to people who want to be politicians.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people I have met and the knowlege they have given me.

Running Start has challenged me to think and act confidentially. It has motivated and inspired me to voice my opinion. I came to running start full of doubts and insecurities; Running Start has given me the confidence to believe in myself, and alerted me to the few women representatives’ we (the United States) have in our government. It really is a grand opportunity for all young women.

I was given the amazing opportunity to participate in the Young Women's Political Retreat put on by Running Start and it was one of the most transforming experiences. The program is great and educates young ladies on all necessary areas needed to be successful as a leader. The Running Start staff members are so passionate about what they do that they empower and encourage young women to begin to think about the options in running for political office and how to begin making positive changes in their communities. Being a part of this program with Running Start was one of the most incredible experiences in my life. I discovered so much about myself and the positive changes I can promote and inspire others to promote in my community as a young woman leader!! Running Start continues to keep contact with us, continue to recommend great opportunities and watch our progress made since being a part of their Young Women's Political Retreat in Washington D.C.

Even though Running Start has only been around for a little over a year, the group has managed to make a huge difference in the lives of young women across the country. With a staff that consists primarily of volunteers, Running Start not only inspires young women to run for office, but also provides them with the tools to do so.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the 50 high school girls who attended the Young Women's Leadership Retreat and left feeling like they could make a difference in their communities by getting involved in the political process.
