Girls Inc. National Scholars
As an adolescent, Imani Malone grew up in the Girls Inc. program not knowing how her experience would impact her future. As a high school student, she volunteered, mentored, and tutored younger girls in the program during her spare time. Through the College-Bound Program, she gained college and career-readiness skills and had the opportunity to meet Dr. Condoleezza Rice. She attributes mentors at Girls Inc. who were in her corner and helped herx to become an independent and strong young woman.
Today, this high school senior is a Girls Inc. National Scholar with plans to attend Auburn University and study chemical engineering in the Fall of 2015. Congratulations and best wishes Imani!
