This group empowers young women to explore life beyond our lifestyles. Our mentors they teach us about taking charge, learn new aspects in our community, and to even take on new adventures with us. I feel that this program needs to be in middle schools, because I feel that they'll enjoy it as well as high school students, because in middle school is when were mostly exposed to college, life decisions and transforming into future leaders of america.

This is my second year of Women Of Tomorrow also i am currently in my second year of high school (10th grade) and I joined women of tomorrow thinking it would have no effect on my life after high school is over, but was i wrong ! I gained so much, whether it be information involving other careers or stories involving the career i'd like to go into , i gained new friends and gained mentors that i could always keep in contact with!I would like to continue being apart of this club as long as i am in high school, it affects me and my peers with information we may have needed to get to our goal in life!

This is my second year in Women of Tomorrow. My mentors are amazing women who always know just the right thing to say. I have grown as a woman and as a being so much because of them. They have helped guide me and helped to create tactics to overcome my fears or solve my problems in everyday life. I have learned how to be taken more seriously as a woman and how to take up more space. These women impact my life and what they do for young girls is absolutely amazing. I hope to do the same one day

I had a wonderful experience with the Women of Tomorrow program last year and I'm definitely looking forward to continuing my experience this year. In the past year I have learned a lot about different careers, people I go to school with and even learned more about myself. I'm glad I got to meet my mentors and hear about their personal lives and stories, while they influenced us in the most positive of ways. The field trips are just a plus, the real fun happens within the walls of the school with great people.

Women of Tomorrow propelled my confidence in high school. My mentor was a phenomenal woman who was brilliant and motivating. The WOT also shaped me in becoming a leader. I shadowed an executive at Telemundo Studios in Miami for an entire summer and was awarded a scholarship for my undergraduate studies. After receiving my Bachelor's in Advertising from the University of Florida, I pursued my degree in law. Women of Tomorrow served as a foundation and gave me the opportunity I never thought I could have. This organization prepares women to become the best version of themselves and excel in many levels in society. Upon completing my degree, I plan on returning the favor to this amazing group of women and becoming a mentor for our high school girls. More high schools need organizations like this to promote healthy images of what women can achieve in the community.

They helped me realize how to detect if you're in a abusive relationship and that it's not always physical abuse. They helped me realize the college I should go to and the financial state I would need to be in if I go there. They helped me realize more reasons why I should go into the medical career. Most importantly, they're like a family to me, it's not just a room full of strangers, we all have a story and as time goes on everyone works up the courage to tell there's.

This is my last year in Women of Tomorrow, so I can honestly say that I have shared some great experiences over the past years. Being a female, Women of Tomorrow empowered me to raise my standards and focus on my education. The mentors bring in accomplished women to speak to us about how they became the powerful women that they are today. Also, we get to go on a field trip every year to wherever we like (for example, last year we went to visit the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric science).
