“What I can say about the virtual conference that we were a part of, they greatly contributed to the girls’ morale and lifted their spirits. Sunburst girls were able to connect with peers during a time when they probably needed connection the most and were able to be part of healthy discussion groups. A few were able to get out of their comfort zones and participated, recited poetry, and sang. The care packages from WJF were greatly appreciated by all the girls. It was a really great experience for them, and I hope the group in the fall class will get to experience it in person.”
