Tell us about your Take Action Challenge. Why did you start this project, what impact did you want to make?
I started this project because I felt like girls at my school should stand up for themselves and that they too can take charge in situations.
What did you accomplish?
For this project I have accomplish more confident in my speech as the club progress.
How did you overcome obstacles?
One of my obstacles was balancing a life of many things. One way I overcame these challenges was that I started to split my club work to my officers and let them speak and have the spotlight. Another way was to sacrifice time for other activities like kung fu.
If you could advice to a future YWLC participant about her Take Action Challenge, what would it be?
Don’t lift everything yourself because it is impossible to do EVERYTHING on your own. Also, expect to fail many times before you reach the success of the project. If you do fail, just pick yourself up and try again with different method.
