Building Lasting Mentoring Bonds at Girls Inc.

Feeling isolated and alone was something Amber experienced from a young age. After leaving her abusive father, Amber and her mother and sister moved from shelter to shelter and struggled to find a safe space. At school, she was ostracized because she was diagnosed with autism. Amber then had to take on the role of helping her mother recover from a stroke. The loneliness she felt between her peers was highlighted and feeling alone gave Amber an inferiority complex that led to self-hatred. 

When Amber discovered Girls Inc., she found the safe, girls-only environment that she longed for throughout her childhood. Here, she formed bonds with staff members who challenged her to play sports and work with other girls in activities that broke down barriers, allowing Amber to discover her strengths. She learned the importance of saving money, how to develop a business plan and create budgets. Amber began to see the differences between herself and her peers as strengths, not detriments. Instead of feeling isolated, she became self-assured and full of hope for her future.  

Today, Amber is a Girls Inc. National Scholar and a student at Northwestern University studying business and international relations. At the 2014 Girls Inc. Los Angeles Celebration Luncheon, she described how Girls Inc. was in her corner when she needed it most. 

Watch Amber and other Girls Inc. National Scholars describe how Girls Inc. inspired them to set and achieve their goals.
