A Girls Inc. of Holyoke leader

When Nysha (Nini) first came here, she didn’t think of herself as a leader.

But that was before she became involved in a Girls Inc. leadership training program. Today, Nini can manage an entire room full of girls, commanding their attention, directing their energy, and keeping them focused on the task at hand.

The Voya – Girls Inc. Investment Challenge

Nini is actively involved in the Voya—Girls Inc. Investment Challenge, which gives girls hands-on investing experience – and real financial gains in the form of college scholarships. Under the guidance of Voya volunteers, she and her colleagues are learning to manage diversified portfolios and develop economic literacy.

Objective: Become a kindergarten teacher.

Nini’s affinity for leading has helped her set her goal of becoming a kindergarten teacher. She has the grades, the passion, and the drive to do so. But her ability to light up a room with learning is what will make her shine.

Do you know a girl who’s ready to lead?

There are lots of girls out there who can become strong leaders if given the chance. If you know of one, tell her about Girls Inc. of Holyoke.

Our mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold by providing them the opportunity to develop and achieve their full potential.
