I joined Girls Who LEAP because I wanted to get involved with the community and learn new transferable skills. Through Girls Who LEAP, I have grown in many ways. I have grown in learning to not over think my thoughts and develop self-care. The program has taught me useful reflecting strategies that I now use on a daily basis. I have also gained confidence by going out of my comfort zone by talking to new people. As a result, I have strengthened my leadership skills in learning how to delegate tasks to people and not overwhelming myself.
An example of this is the development of my own process of decision making. A lot of my interactions with other people involve a thought process, a decision on the next step, and the execution of that step. This is the general method I use in order to move forward and change my situations. Building this cycle has allowed me to think about how those three components work with each other to make an outcome. I believe the ideas of this cycle would not be possible without the help of the Girls Who LEAP Program.
