In an effort to fit in and make friends in a new school, Emily befriended a group of girls who targeted anyone they thought was different. She also did not want to let the other girls know she excelled in her classes and pretended not to care about school.
After two years of hiding her real self, Emily looked for clubs in her Orange County community that would show her how to be a positive influence and help develop her passion for outreach. When she found Girls Inc., 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.
As she got closer to graduation, Girls Inc. mentors helped Emily applying to college and she had the opportunity to interact with influential women and in her community who finished college and were on the path to success. As a result of her own experience, Emily was inspired to become a role model for other girls who thought college was out of reach for them. At school, she was elected president of an organization that promotes teacher appreciation and she continued to mentor younger girls.
Today, Emily is preparing for a career as a teacher at Mills College in California.
