“I have been coming to the Boys & Girls Club since the third grade. Whether I’m going through a tough time in my life or I’m just in need of a place to escape and clear my mind from it all, the Club has always lent a helping hand. The staff at the Boys & Girls Club are the type of people who understand, can relate to situations going on, and think to judge your character last. Being a senior I get much needed help from the Teen Director who helps me with different scholarship opportunities and good colleges to look into. In school today I am an honor student maintaining at least a 3.0 G.P.A. every quarter. I push hard in school to make a better future and life for myself and my family. As an African American young lady I can honestly say the Boys & Girls Club has helped me through this process called life. I am involved in my community with volunteer work and community service. I stay out of trouble, I am heavily involved in extracurricular activities I am an athlete and an accomplished flutist. In the future using all the tools and experiences from both school and the Boys & Girls Club, I will strive to attend college and pursue my dream of becoming a pediatrician.”
