Nubia L.

Inspiration:
Nubia L.

Nubia is 15 years old and has been a member of the Douglas County Club for seven years.  Her favorite club activity is Girl Talk, because it provides her a forum to openly discuss her feelings.  Having been home schooled for her entire life, she says that BGCMA has helped her social skills tremendously – without the club she feels she would still be the quiet, shy girl in the back of the room.  For her, the best part of BGCMA is the people – she knows that no matter the situation she finds herself in, “they’ve got her back” just like a family would.
