Student, Young Women's Leadership Charter High School, Class of 2016,
I would describe the typical YWLCS student as a young lady who is hard working and is trying break the norms of societal standards of gender. She doesn't believe that her worth is confined only within the walls of the kitchen but that she is destined to be great. She is destined to be a leader. A Young Woman Leader holds these beliefs close to her heart and everyday her actions reflect them. Typical YWLCS students upholds the idea of sisterhood. Typical Young Women Leaders look out for one another even if they don't always see eye to eye. They live out the school's values by respecting themselves and everyone around them. A typical student understands that she isn't perfect but strives everyday to be the best that she can be.
