Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold


Yvonne Finds the Support to Believe in Herself and Her Future

Growing up, Yvonne struggled to have a strong relationship with her mother, not receiving the attention or care she needed. It was also difficult for her to bond with other women in her family or find role models who could help her set high expectations and share their experiences of setting education and career goals. Yvonne blamed herself for this lack of love and began to self harm as a result. Thankfully, she found Girls Inc. in middle school.

It was through her experiences with Girls Inc. that Yvonne began to feel the care and support she had been missing. She realized that she was not alone in feeling lonely and sometimes hopeless about the future. At Girls Inc., she found mentors among the staff who helped her envision a bright future for herself. Yvonne started to appreciate life much more and became excited about her future. With Girls Inc. in her corner, she found the support to heal emotionally as well as improve the relationship with her mother.  

This fall, Yvonne will attend the University of California, Berkeley, where she plans to major in International and Business and Management with a minor in Communication. She plans to complement her studies with adventures abroad in Germany, Italy, France, and China. After college, Yvonne wants to start an entertainment company that focuses on women in the sports and entertainment industries.

“When I look at my life today, it’s hard to imagine being the 12-year-old-girl who wanted to hurt herself instead of getting help. I am proud of myself. I have come a long way. With Girls Inc. by my side showing me the light of day, I know that I am loved, seen and heard.”
