Describe a student outcome or success that you are most proud of.
One of the girls I work with recently took control of her life and recognized the important role that education plays in the life she wants to build. She’s been going to school every day and has set goals for herself! I also feel proud whenever girls self-advocate, solve problems in productive ways, and step out of their comfort zone.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Invest in good relationships- good relationships keep us happier and healthier!
