I didn’t know what a GPA was before Girls Group. Now I have a 3.9 and am setting my sights on the University of Michigan.

I really enjoy Girls Group because I get to experience new places and trying new foods while meeting with my mentor.
Britney
Before Girls Group, I had a 2.3 GPA. I graduated from high school with a 3.8, obtained my BA from Tuskegee and my MSW from UM. Girls Group has really helped mold me into the woman I am today!
