What will be your role at Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis?
I will be the public relations intern. My job will be managing social media, blog posts, the newsletter, and any other necessary tasks.
What about the Girls Inc. mission appeals to you?
I have a very strong, bold, and smart grandmother that accomplished so much beyond married for over 50 years and having three small children. The mission always reminds me of her. She has accomplished a lot many told her she couldn’t because she knew she could, including receiving her GED in her late 50s. She’s the perfect example of the kind of woman I feel the mission hopes to create.
How are you strong, smart, and bold?
I’ve always tried to follow a general guideline, the golden rule. Whenever someone needs help, I try to be there. I truly believe strength isn’t physical or refraining from feeling sad, but overcoming every downfall in order to reach your goals. I think I’m smart because I try to understand where others are coming from and I don’t believe in judging others. I think trying to understand someone takes far more effort mentally than judging them. I think I’m bold because I am unapologetically me and refuse to budge on my main values.
