Review for Girls Incorporated Of Memphis, Memphis, TN, USA
I was a smart young man at Mitchell High School, that really didn't know alot about college. I became an Allstar with Girl Inc. and my life took a turn for better. I learn that it was out their in the world than just Memphis TN. I attended a Math/Science Program at Morehouse College. When I first got their in the summer of 97 I was scared and didn't know what to expect. I took several classes with kids acroos the US, and I felt like I wasn't smart as the kids coming from the other states. I felt my little school Mitchell didn't prepare me for what I was about to experience at Morehouse. So I became a problem child, wouldn't do my work in class because I was afraid to fail. I didn't have the confidence in myself so I just shut down and caused problems. I had to talk to all the administration over the program at Morehouse and I had to talk to William Mathew Jackson who all told me to give it a try for a week or two doing my work and see how i come out. After a week or two I saw that I was just as smart as all the other kids in the programs. I finished the program with 7 awards and a good attitude about myself. I thank Girl Inc. for given me the confidence I needed to say that I'm going to college. I now have a degree in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from Lane College and working on a Master's in Education from the University of Grand Canyon. I would like to say THANK YOU GIRLS INC. and I LOVE YOU ALL.
