Last month we kicked off our Young Women in Leadership (YWIL) program for the 2018-2019 school year! Cassie, one of the participants, answered a few questions on what she hopes to accomplish this year and what she is most excited for:








What grade are you in and where do you go to school?

Hi, my name is Cassie and I’m a ninth grader who goes to Providence Cristo Rey High School.

Have you participated in YWIL before? If so, for how long? Why do you want to participate in this program?

This is my first time participating in the YWIL program. I’m excited to participate because of all the fun trips and things we get to do this year!

What are you most excited for during this year of YWIL?

I’m the most excited for all of the college trips we’re taking because this will be my first time going to a historical black college/university, and that’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

What do you hope to accomplish by the end of this year through the YWIL program?

My main goal I hope to accomplish this year in the YWIL program is to grow as a leader, and learn to be more open with new people.

What are your goals for the future? 

My goals for the future are to graduate college and high school so I can major in graphic design; and later become the head of a marketing department for a company.
