The reason why I chose to work with Girls Inc. is because I believe that our young women are our future and it is important to mold them at a very young age. It is essential to mobilize young women of color in solidarity with each other to create a society free from all systems of oppression. I am honored to be a part of this great organization that strives to empower young girls of color and remind them that it doesn’t matter where they come from, they can be successful and achieve anything that they want with the tools given to them.
