Erika S.

Erika is 14 years old and has been a member of the Jesse Draper Club for seven years; she wants to be an educator when she grows up.  Her favorite club activities are Global Girls and Keystone Club because they both give her the opportunity to demonstrate and improve her leadership skills.  She says that the BGCMA has taught her to overcome her shyness and to be more confident.  For her, the best part of BGCMA is “EVERYTHING!!!”
