Looking back onto this year at MAPS, I have realized the amount of things we have accomplished. The starting of Waza Ladies was so exciting for me but then disappointing when the communication between us and Zana Africa slowly diminished. I take pride, though, in knowing that I started with the help of Demi a program that could possibly be helpful to these ladies in Kenya. Freshmen and Sophomore year, I had no clue what MAPS was. I did not know what went on in the boardroom, in fact I didn’t even know it was there. Now, if someone were to ask me what MAPS is, I am able to spew out facts and information. I have become much more conscious about women in business. The philanthropic round table was so inspirational especially to young women. The Conference that Meagan planned and had here was so much fun and girls at MHS were raving about it all day. If Meagan were asked to do that last year, she would have refused but to see the growth she has made in one short year is astounding. Mrs. Rubin has guided us as our fearless leader. She has helped us in times of trouble and shared with us joy in times of success. I came into MAPS, a loud junior who was crazed about getting into college. Now I am a, still loud, confident senior ready to embark on the next journey of my life. I could not have gone through MAPS without Meagan and Caroline. Meagan, I’ve gotten to know you a lot more which I am so glad about. You are an awesome human being and do not let anyone tell you differently. Caroline, we’ve been friends for four years and you have grown into a more confident person. I would like to thank MAPS for bringing me close with these two people and with the juniors of the group. I will graduate Miss Hall’s with a fearless attitude and thirst for knowledge. I will miss MAPS and all that it stands for.
