Like a lot of young girls, ten-year-old Miracle Lowe was unsure of herself the first day she came to Girls Inc. But it didn’t last long.
“When I got there I was scared, but I started to get to know people right away,” Miracle said. “I loved getting to play with other girls and do activities. Everyone was communicating and that made it all fun.”
A fifth-grader at Southern Avenue Charter School, Miracle started taking part in Girls Inc. activities two years ago. And in that relatively short time, she’s learned a lot, she says.
“At Girls Inc., I learned how to sew, how to play basketball and how to be a young lady,” she said.
Add to that list soccer, how to control a baseball bat, what it means to be a girl and the importance of being respectful.
“If you don’t get along with people, people aren’t going to like you,” she said. “Girls Inc. wants good, intelligent and respectful ladies.”
That’s Miracle’s way of describing what we do every day at Girls Inc. of Memphis—inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold. And we couldn’t do any of it without YOU!
With the help of supporters like you, we were able to celebrate lots of “miracles” in 2020—like providing more than 800 hours of virtual programming and homework help, distributing more than 1,000 grocery gift cards and produce boxes to our families and programming with over 1,500 girls!
Because of you we were able to do all that and so much more—including nurturing a young girl named Miracle, who says she wants to be a doctor because she likes to help people.
“At Girls Inc., I learned it’s important to respect yourself and who you are,” Miracle said, “and to help others that need help.”
Your generosity makes it possible for more girls like Miracle to learn to respect themselves and how important it is to help others. Thank you for helping us inspire more girls like Miracle – with friends like you, it’s going to be a great year.
