Building Lasting Mentoring Bonds at Girls Inc.

In an effort to fit in and make friends at a new school, Emily did not want to let other girls know she excelled in her classes, so she pretended not to care about school. After two years of hiding her real self, Emily found Girls Inc. in her Orange County community. Here, Emily discovered opportunities to mentor girls, workshops that focused on overcoming negative body image stereotypes, and Eureka!, a Girls Inc. program that introduces girls to STEM fields and careers. 

Through mentorships from Girls Inc. leaders and guidance about how to apply to college, Emily was inspired to not only apply, but to be a role model for other girls who thought college was out of reach. Having the opportunity to interact with strong, influential women gave her the drive to be a similar leader. Using the mentoring skills she discovered at Girls Inc., Emily was elected president of an organization at her school that promotes teacher appreciation and she also continued to mentor younger girls. 

Today, Emily is preparing for a career as a teacher at Mills College in California.
