How has the Boys & Girls Club impacted his/her life?
The Boys & Girls Club alleviated my social anxiety. When I became a BGCA member, I began to befriend many different people and embark on many adventures to give back to the community. I was also exposed to more public speaking activities, and I gained the ability to speak in front of hundreds of people without stuttering and without anxiety. I also garnered a more adventurous and outgoing attitude. Without the Boys & Girls Club, I would not be who I am today.
