I was first introduced to CCFC and WALC in 2011 when I went with my undergraduate Geography Field Course! I returned in 2012 for several months as an intern and got to participate in the day-to-day of the WALC program and see the transformation of these girls, both emotionally, leadership wise and skill-based. I most recently returned to visit CCFC about a year ago (May 2016) to complete some research about the WALC program and to visit with some of my friends from the 2012 WALC program. It was incredible to hear their success academically and professionally and to see them happy and healthy. Likewise, the growth of CCFC in terms of capacity, programming, staff and facilities. I'm honored to be connected to CCFC and love promoting it in my personal, professional and academic life!
