Read the perspective of Aryana in an article by Girls Inc.; Aryana is a Girls Inc. alumna and currently an intern with the Girls Inc. Advocacy Team, and in the article, she shares her perspective on the current situation and how her Girls Inc. experience is helping see her through the trying circumstances we find ourselves in.
“Strong, smart, bold. These three words were instilled in me as soon as I entered Girls Inc. of Lynn in the sixth grade and continued until I graduated high school. I was strongly encouraged to go (Thanks Mom!) and soon found the magic that lies within those walls that inspires and supports growth in girls. During these transformative years at Girls Inc., I learned many things, like how to advocate for myself and others, how to be a leader, how to be more confident, and of course how to be strong, smart, and bold. The relationships I cultivated with staff and other girls provided a support system for me, one that I still access when needed.”
