Thanks to Girls Inc. Jennifer is now a Leader

When Jennifer’s family moved to the US, she didn’t speak English well, was extremely shy and didn’t feel comfortable interacting with her middle school peers. Further damaging her self-confidence, she was diagnosed with scoliosis at a young age.

Jennifer was encouraged to join Girls Inc. and soon found a sisterhood of support, which made her feel safe, included, and even empowered. Through the encouragement of her mentor, Jennifer began organizing fundraising walks and bake sales to improve her neighborhood and discovered her love of civic leadership.

Jennifer also participated in economic literacy programming. She learned how to balance her bank account, how to handle her everyday finances, and what financial investment was all about. These newly acquired skills left her feeling confident and financially independent.

"Being around this type of positive energy just encourages me to do better. Girls Inc. has not only taught me to be smart, it has made me an educated, cultured, and versatile individual. The open-mindedness I have adopted at  Girls Inc. will open the door to many possibilities,” shares Jennifer.

Jennifer plans to study business in college to further her civic involvement. She is also committed to joining multicultural programs on campus and bringing more cultural awareness to her future school.

This month, we’re celebrating the power of financially savvy girls like Jennifer!
