Dear LEAD Allies,
I hope you are all staying safe and well during this time.
My name is Audrey Buck and this summer I am working as the LEAD Girls Summer Associate. As a feminist, having the opportunity to intern with an organization that devotes so much to helping girls become the best versions of themselves and gives them the tools and resources to become active leaders now as well as in the future, has been an invaluable experience. I believe so strongly in female empowerment for every girl and woman, and LEAD provides just that.
I am very interested in Marketing and PR, and after meeting with the rest of the wonderful LEAD team, as well as looking through the great pre-work Wildfire provided as the chosen agency for the 2019 Propalooza, I was up for the challenge to create marketing content for LEAD as well as help with long term planning.
Working with LEAD has been an incredible opportunity for me to gain experience in the professional field I want to pursue, but more importantly, to work for an organization whose mission is so important in empowering young girls to be the best they can be and preparing them to be our leaders of tomorrow.
Thank you for being our village!
We are in this together,
Americorps Vista Summer Associate
LEAD Girls of NC Summer Intern

We remain optimistic about our new normal and will continue to show up for our girls, because every girl deserves a chance to LEAD.
