Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold

Finding Confidence in Differences

As a young girl, Vanessa felt torn between, and rejected by, both aspects of her cultural identity: Ghanaian and American. While some of her classmates ridiculed her dark complexion, some fellow Ghanaians disapproved that she never learned the primary language of the country. 

Feeling like she would never fit in, but eager to find a safe space where she could just be herself, Vanessa joined Girls Inc. where she discovered Girls Inc. Eureka!, a multi-year program that gives girls experience on a college campus and exposes them to STEM fields. Here, she met supportive girls who became her friends; gained in-depth knowledge about the environment; and learned to take positive risks. By having a space where Vanessa could talk openly about feeling like she didn't belong, she found the strength to embrace her differences, not hide them. The hands-on, minds-on activities that Vanessa immersed herself in at Girls Inc. inspired her to think about what she wanted to do after high school. With her Eureka! experience as a foundation and college as her goal for the future, she was guided through the college application process with the help of Girls Inc. mentors.  

Now a 2015 Girls Inc. National Scholar, Vanessa will attend the University of Nevada, Reno in September. Congratulations, Vanessa! We are so proud of everything that you have accomplished and all that you will achieve.
