Girls Inc. Empowers Ekra to Achieve Academically and Find Her Voice

e_0.jpg

After September 11th, Ekra was relentlessly bullied at school because of her religion. She felt isolated - oftentimes eating lunch alone in the school bathroom — and began to fall behind academically.

When Ekra found Girls Inc., the supportive, all-girl environment empowered her demand respect inside and outside the classroom. Girls Inc. mentors helped Ekra with her schoolwork. As a result, her grades improved and she began to read at the same level as her peers.

Throughout her 12 years at Girls Inc., Ekra became a peer educator, prepared for college, and landed internships in STEM fields. Today, Ekra is the first person in her family to graduate high school and attend college.

"Girls Inc. taught me that I have a bright future with endless opportunities. I am confident in my skills to excel in college and make my parents proud of me."

This fall, Ekra plans to attend the University of California at Davis to study Computer Science and wants to encourage more girls to pursue careers in STEM.
