I've been a member of the Board of TIME for 2 years, and I've loved every second. I've met such amazing women, worked with incredible girls during the programs, and have learned so much from all of them. My favorite thing about TIME is the passion of everyone involved. It's so wonderful to see such a group of devoted, talented women come together around such a great cause. Every activity, from Board meetings to public events, is inspirational and exciting. I'm so proud of everything we've accomplished, and I so look forward to the future as we continue to grow. I led an 8-week writing workshop for the girls this summer, and I have been so pleased to watch their progress. In the beginning, they were hesitant to even read aloud in front of the group. Now, they're workshopping their pieces with each other, and giving each other constructive, positive feedback. It's always a competition to see who gets to read their own work to the group first! They've become so comfortable and confident with their writing - it's been a privilege to be a part of it.
