"It was really great seeing how our project impacted and inspired other groups. One small group of girls came up after one of our presentations, asking if we had any tips to "get to where we are". It really opened my eyes to see we have gotten to a goal so many strive for. For that, I am grateful for this opportunity to learn from others and teach others, including myself.” Chiara Power, Rock Solid
