What I love about Girls Empowerment Network: As a young girl I had one of the strongest support systems, from my mother a first-generation Latina who holds an engineering degree, to teachers who saw my potential before I did, to mentors who inspired me and helped propel me forward. It was the village around me who helped, motivated, and believed in me so I can be as successful as I am today. I am inspired daily by what Girls are doing for those girls who may not have the support system like I had, so they too can realize just how powerful they are!
