SYF was an absolutely incredible experience. I strongly recommend the program to all girls and young women looking to grow and develop as future leaders. It not only builds courage, confidence, and character, it also provides participants the opportunity to leave their mark on their community. Through SYF, I received the tools and opportunity to develop through seminars, team-building activities, mentoring, networking, and a community project.
For my project, I led the construction of mini greenhouses for my school’s community garden. I was coached and supported by my mentor, Karen Baker, and the whole SYF organization. Karen really helped me sort out my ideas and her help was definitely crucial to the success of my project. Thanks to her, I was able to gain vital experience as a leader, while contributing positively to the natural and social environment of my school and community.
I am truly grateful for my experience at SYF and would like to thank my father and all the support from Pratt and Whitney, with a special Thank You to my mentor, Karen Baker.
The SYF program has given me the confidence and laid the foundations for all my achievements to come!
