Dear Girls, Being born a girl doesn't give people a right to choose our future, a future is chosen by you. Your eye's will see what you want them to see. You will love who and what you want to love. You will voice what you want to say. You will do what your hands can do and so much more. We are recognized by boys and girls, but being a boy or girl isn't labeling who you are, we're equal. You are You, so embrace it, embrace danger, embrace something people don't think you can achieve and achieve it. Do what you want! There are a million different paths boys can go on, there are a million that you can go on too. You may get lost, you may take a wrong turn, you may find a sign that wasn't what it seemed, but your not following some else's map, your following your own. Reach the standards you never thought you had. Be your girl.

The Good Life Goals

Studies show that students who learn the writing process score better on state writing tests than those who receive only specific instruction in the skills assessed on the test. This type of authentic writing produces lifelong learners and allows students to apply their writing skills to all subjects.
