Inspired by SMART Girls @ The Dashaway Luncheon
UP attended intent on empowering SMART Girls of Boys and Girls Club of Hartford. We left inspired by the stories we heard! "If those girls, at such a young age,can overcome barriers of language, displaced from their homes and family- yet still succeed,"one Candidate reflected, "surely that is an example we can follow to overcome the difficulty of 'landing' following a career break for caregiving!"
