When I first started Girls Inc. I didn’t think I was smart. I got tired of not making good grades and not knowing the answers to questions in class. Girls Inc. taught me to be responsible and accountable which are the most valuable life lessons I could have ever learned. When I started doing these things my entire life changed; I have seen a huge improvement in my grades and my self-confidence has increased in well. I now believe in myself and I know that the sky is the limit!
