I never spoke up for myself when I didn’t agree with something until now. I speak my mind when I disagree with people. GIRLS ON FYER has inspired me to be a role model for the community
In the beginning of the program I had an attitude. I was very shy and quiet when I came to this program and I would always say yes to my friends. Also I wasn’t really into school programs, up until now. I say no to negative friends and now I barely hang out with them. I have worked on my attitude at home and school.
Since being in this program I have become a lot nicer to people. I care a lot about their feelings. I am not that shy anymore. What inspires me to come every weekend is that I look forward to new things. I have been inspired and I like the way that I am.”
In the beginning of the program I was afraid to talk to people around me, I was shy, only cared for myself and always following behind my friends. As the program went on I learned how to be a leader not a follower. I care for the people around me and I am not shy to say what’s on my mind. Since I’ve been a part of S.G.O.F. I’ve been inspired to help out the community and help young girls.
When I first started the program, I was loud, rambunctious, and obsessed with my phone. However as time went on and I got deeper into the group, my attitude and social skills became less of a problem. I grew out of my shell, my confidence level expanded. Learning more about myself than I’ve ever known.
