One of the most important gifts you can give a young woman today is the gift of self-esteem. I think it’s much harder growing up a young woman these days as information about everything moves fast and I think it can be confusing.
About 3 years ago I became a mentor to an 8th grader who lives in a tough part of Los Angeles. She just started her junior year in high school and is starting to think about college. She comes from a low-income family and is a first-generation American. I totally lucked out with her as she has a really good head on her shoulders. She actually dreams about going to Harvard, and she probably could as she has the grades.
