In this program, I learned more than technology. Ive learned how to be a leader and be more open to others. The program is over tomorrow, but I've already learned how to share my skills with others. After GirlSource taught me how to use different applications on the MAC computer, I went back to my other program, I Have a Dream and helped them fix the computers and also taught my fellow peers about iMovie, Photoshop, Powerpoint and more. I learned how to speak up and not to be shy in front of others. I start to talk and participate more in different conversations. Ive met people that I will definitly keep in contact wit in the future. They are life time friends, and im not just saying that. I shared secrets that I would never ever in my life tell ne one.
I knew I grew out of my shell.
I know that I will be telling everyone to apply to this program. Especially a chick coming out of the ghetto, this experience has open many doors for me. The last thing I want people to know is that, the staff arent like teachers.. They are more like adult friends. They understand everything you say. The one on one talk that we had with AnaEyvette, made a difference. She was willing to help me even after i graduate from this program. With both getting a job and my academics.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Are the best ! Man you wont even know that they are adults ! They know everything you been through. And listen to what you have to say.
