Discovering Sharon's Business Sense

Growing up in a strict household, Sharon identified with the values that her parents impressed upon her, but she wanted to find a place where she could try new things and gain skills so she could also be independent. For Sharon, Girls Inc. was that place. Here, she learned how to efficiently manage money by learning how to balance a checkbook, the importance of setting goals, and what it means to achieve financial independence.

Through Girls Inc. Eureka!, a multi-year program focused on math, science and technology, Sharon secured paid internships at Gap Inc. and Popchips Inc. These experiences ignited her passion for business and inspired her to take on more responsibilities at the restaurant her family owned. For Sharon, Girls Inc. turned her onto a field that she didn’t know she liked and gave her the tools to become a valuable asset to her family’s business. 
 
Today, Sharon is continuing to pursue finance as a student at UCLA where she’s studying business and economics.
