We celebrated a milestone for EmpowHer Institute – the high school graduation of our EmpowHer Leaders Academy members. They are the first cohort of girls, that participated in our EmpowHer Girls Academy since 7th grade, to graduate from high school. We are extremely proud of these young ladies. They are incredibly self-aware, confident and focused. We know that they will go on to accomplish great things in college and beyond. For, the best is yet to come.
We also celebrated the culmination of our 8th grade EmpowHer Girls Academy (EGA) participants. These girls have participated in EGA since the 7th grade. They have shown tremendous growth over the past two years. Many transforming from shy girls with insecurities and self-doubt to bold young ladies who are confident in themselves and their abilities. This transformation was eloquently articulated by EGA participant, Megan Zamora, during her culmination speech (see video).
