Shainu - Brooklyn Technical HS Ambassador
My experience with the SPEAK program has been quite exciting. Once I received approval for my club at school, I had to focus on the club fair and executive board positions for the club. Many students were interested, but I turned them down. I was looking for leadership qualities that stood out and would help in the long run. I narrowed down the candidate list to four girls, including myself. The first informational meeting for SPEAK is next week and I hope it will be successful. Approximately, thirty kids signed up, but I do not know how many will attend at the first meeting.
Despite these challenges, I am still excited to get paired up with a mentor and explore the different career opportunities.
