Hi, my name is Kimari Hemsley, and I am in eighth grade at Daniel Webster Middle School. I have been part of Ladies First at Daniel Webster for two years. Some of the leadership activities I participated in the past are hosting a girl's banquet, hosting school tours at Daniel Webster for visiting parents, and the Glamour Women of the Year Awards.
I participated in the Girls Build LA last year, and through it I gained knowledge on the importance of equality among women. By participating in the Girls Build LA this year, I hope to gain the confidence that I can do anything I put my mind to. STEM and college access are important to me because there are not many women in the STEM field and education is key.
