Hi, my name is Janae Burgess and I am in eighth grade at Daniel Webster Middle School. I have been part of Ladies First at Daniel Webster for three years. Some of the leadership activities I participated in the past are the Ladies First Banquet, USC field trips, and African-American Family Day at Hamilton High School.
I participated in Girls Build LA last year and through it i gained a higher sense of self-awareness, and learned that women are much more than just a pretty face. By participating in Girls Build LA this year, I hope to develop stronger leadership skills. Learning about STEM and college access are important to me because it is a great step toward our future.
