Here’s what her peers say:
The mission of the Be. Org is To encourage and nurture youth to live above their socially-imposed limitations; to develop their character, talents, and leadership skills allowing them to go beyond a dream and achieve remarkable excellence.
The goal is to build up and empower young people to withstand peer pressures, societal norms, and other negative influences. Our hopes are to create a strong focus to ensure lifelong success.
