I have been an active member of the Lower Eastside Girls Club for 5 years now, and this organization has truly helped me tremendously in so many ways. Their support system, and opportunities have forever changed my life, and have influenced my passions for the future. To say the least, its unbelievable what a few dedicated mothers with a dream for providing a local girls club in the Lower Eastside because there was only a boys club, created. From having the first meetings in various basements, to me growing up in a 1 room space with them, to now touring the new 3 story building sincerely, (as cheesy as it sounds) makes me warm inside. These women and girls are my second family and I couldn't be more thankful for having a place where I can be myself, and am encouraged to dream big. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Lower Eastside Girls Club!
The talented, and smart Jasmine was my assistant tour guide, and joined the Girls Club about a year ago, and dreams of working in the CSI :)
