Our Emerging Leaders internship program is drawing to a close this week. We are so proud of all of the different ways our 2018 group has impacted GLIDE. Here is Juliana Mastro with her two mentors from this summer—Lillian Marks and Isolde Femi. Juliana says of her experience here: . “My time as an Emerging Leader has helped me realize that to give people the help they need, we must first realize how we can grow within ourselves. We are all recovering from something. I am still learning to embrace the power of my own voice. This summer at GLIDE was a bright beginning in that process, and I am so grateful for that.” . #emergingleaders #womenofGLIDE #Recovery
