My name is Queen Freeman and I’m 12 years old. I’ve been a Girls Inc. member for 5 years. Being a Girls Inc. girl is very enjoyable. You get to make friends who are not in the same school as you and you get to sign up for a lot of different programs and opportunities. I have had a chance to participate in very many programs such as Techbridge, Art club, B.U.M.P (Bike Union mentoring Project) and much more. This year my most favorite was the book club. During book club we were able to read: Sins of the Father by Theolonious Legend and Teenage Blues and Teenage Blues 3 both by various authors. Being in a book club I’ve been able to work with my friends in book discussions and share how the stories impact us and how we are able to relate to these stories. Sometimes you go in thinking this book is going to be boring and not make sense, but you start reading and you gradually find yourself so focused and attentive that you want to read the book in a day. Because of book club I now have better grammar and I’m more likely to pick up a book and read for fun. It is amazing how a book can capture your imagination and take you on a journey while at home or at Girls Inc. Everyone should join a book club.
My name is Teriana and I’m 9 years old. I have been a part of Girls Inc. for 3 years. In those 3 years, I’ve been able to attend a lot of fun field trips to the planetarium, baseball games, swimming and shows at the Rose Theater. This year I’m very excited to continue to be a part of a book club. We call it Read and Feed because we get snacks as we read. This summer we read, The Name of this Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch. The main reason I enjoy book club, is because it is quiet and very relaxing. I get to practice how to pronounce new words that I’ve never seen and learn how to express myself using those words. If you have never joined a book club do it!! OR join our Read and Feed at Girls Inc. You. Will. Love. it.
