Being a mentor and camp counselor for LiveGirl has helped me become a better and more confident version of myself. Leading a diverse group is challenging and has pushed me out of my comfort zone in the best way possible. First, finding a way to connect with girls from all different backgrounds is a great learning experience, but then to be able to help foster relationships between each of the girls is where lives are really changed. To witness the girls’ growth during camp is powerful. These middle school girls are gaining self confidence and the power to believe in themselves and support one another. To know this progression is greatly because of the guidance and support you show for them is extremely rewarding.
