We are excited to announce our very own Sophia from the Urban Assembly Institute of Math and Science for Young Women (UAI) has been selected as a Girls Inc. 2015 National Scholar at $20,000! She is the company of 30 other National Scholars but only 14 others were selected to receive $20,000. She was selected from a pool of over 100 applicants. Sophia shares what makes her a strong, smart, and bold girl:
"I am STRONG because I can effectively express myself. I am SMART because I have developed new skills that would help me develop my own business. Lastly, I am BOLD because I know the importance of trying new things whether it may seem challenging at first."
