What inspires you to volunteer? I love watching girls try something new and praise each other’s work. You know there will be a ripple effect as each girl goes back out into the world ready to share what they have learned about themselves.

What inspires you to volunteer? I've always enjoyed teaching others things I'm passionate about and sharing the gifts I’ve been given. During a retreat, it's exciting to watch girls try new things and find out how talented they are. Knowing I may help them come out of their shells a bit and build confidence is very rewarding.
