Girls Inc. Update: Your Investment at Work

Our family fled war-torn Syria when we were eight, first moving to Egypt and then arriving in the United States when we were 13. As refugees, we often felt like outsiders at school. However, thanks to Girls Inc. and supporters like you, we found a supportive community where we were embraced for who we are and could share our cultural background.

We have always shared an interest in the medical fields, and Girls Inc.’s career exploration opportunities helped us decide to pursue careers in dentistry. This fall, we will attend Monterey Peninsula College and major in biological sciences as a pre-dental pathway, with the goal of one day earning Doctorates in Dental Medicine. We want to help alleviate the health issues of refugees and to treat patients in low-income communities.

Zena: Girls Inc. was a game changer. In the welcoming all-girls environment at Girls Inc., I felt engaged and encouraged to ask questions. Girls Inc. taught me that my voice is powerful and can inspire change.

Hala: At Girls Inc., I developed curiosity and a craving for independence that allowed me to set ambitious goals. I realized that being a woman is a blessing.

Thanks to your continued support, Girls Inc. is a game changer for us both, and for tens of thousands of other girls.

Sincerely,

Zena & Hala
2021 Girls Inc. National Scholars
