I joined the SISTA program last year, not knowing that it would become the foundation of me learning to be the strong woman I always wanted to be. I found myself being over excited to see what we would be doing in class each week. And as time progressed I became able to say that some of my most memorable, life changing moments were brought on during my most appreciated experience at SCLO!
Through Second Chance, we were able to attend a Woman Act Now Women’s Conference in Orlando that bonded all the young ladies that had a chance to go. It also gave us our ‘voices’; we all took something special away from that powerful experience. It reinforced much of what we had been learning in the SISTA Program.
I think I speak for all the participants of the SISTA Program when I say that the skills, encouragement, wisdom and love we received from Second Chance helped us to apply all the things that we learned in SISTA to our daily lives. I consider myself blessed to have been able to enjoy the SISTA Program and SCLO as a whole because all the women I encountered encouraged me to be the best ‘me’ that I can be. On behalf of the women in my community that SCLO has blessed and to all those supporters who made it possible for the women to participate in the SCLO programs, I thank you for changing our lives.
