“The confidence I have in my abilities, the courage I portray when I take risks and bet on myself, and the constant yearning to learn and empower others through that learning is all because of my GA experience.”

“You don’t have to be a certain kind of girl to be successful and happy here. This is a community where all types of interests and talents are celebrated. This is a community where the girls support each other and lift each other up.”

“Maybe my favorite part of my work is the tangible impact. Every day, students leave my classroom having learned something they didn’t know when they walked in. And by the end of the year, they’ve acquired a whole new body of knowledge. That kind of transformation happens every year, but it’s still unbelievable to see.”
