Penny! She’s such an amazing soul. She was always there for me when I needed her when I was in high school. She was one of the people in my life that made me see how truly special I was. She helped me see my worth. I owe a lot to her. Not only was she my mentor but she was like a mom to me.

I moved here from Memphis, TN when I was a freshman with my parents and siblings. Being the youngest of ten I played a big roll in my family. One of my older brother’s had a heart attack when I was nine years old,I knew that I would have to be selfless in order for my brother to have a good functional life. With my brother being handicapped I couldn’t do what normal teens did. Which caused a lot of stress on me, and made it super hard to focused in high school. I had no one to express this to! I remembered I used to pray ,and ask God to send me someone or just a place I could express myself ,and just tell somebody what’sgoing on in my home . My Jr. year my prayers was answered. The Queens group came to Armstrong. I believed now I
had a safe place to express myself, get support, and release all the stress that I had weighing on me since I was 9yrs old. Because of the Queens Group I was able to survive high school, passed with more credits than I needed, and learned the tools to get through any stressful situations that may occur in the future. I am forever grateful for The Queens Group!
