This institute has helped me feel like I can make an impact in my community. I have been inspired to take action. I feel more confident and that my voice as a young woman is important.
Participating in this institute was an incredible step in my leadership journey. I pushed myself to grow, made lasting connections with my classmates, and learned more than I expected. It was an incredible experience.
I learned more about what women in the world face, and how they might overcome their problems. The amazing young women that I got to know this summer taught me a lot to know for when I leave my tiny island and explore the bigger parts of the world. By taking this class, I’ve gained confidence and knowledge. I believe in myself MORE, and I want to be brave—take risks.
