I started attending Girls Inc when I was 6 years old. Through this program, I was able to learn how to be a strong, smart, and bold independent woman. The values that were taught to me througout my 12 year experience with Girls Inc have stayed with me to this very day. By being apart of Girls Inc for many years, I was afforded the opportunity to volunteer, mentor, and now be employed by the very program that has given me so much already. If I could rate Girls Inc a 10, I surely would because they deserve so many more stars than 5.
