During my five years at Girls Inc. I had a sisterhood of support and eventually became a role model for younger girls. Having girls look up to me as a leader, I remember feeling very proud of that. Every girl should have that same opportunity to be a leader and a role model. Every girl deserves to become the leader of her own life.
