Hi! Our names are Sofia Keri and Kyra Gallagher and we are both juniors in high school. We created G.L.E.A.M. to give girls in underserved communities the opportunity to be a part of a female community that they can rely on. Having the experience of attending an all-girls school has given us a unique perspective, and has inspired us to create opportunities for girls in grades 3-8.
How It Started
During the Covid pandemic, we became aware of many girls in communities near ours who could not attend school and lacked the resources, information, and guidance necessary to continue their personal development. We wanted to impact these communities positively, so we set up G.L.E.A.M. with Mentors and programs to provide another resource for these girls. We hope that creating an environment with women to support girls will instill confidence in them as they continue to grow.
