Hi my name is Evelyn I am 12, years old and in 7th grade I have a sister and a brother.The reason i wanted to be in girls build la was because i think it could help me be better and if we win 1,2, or 3 place i would be happy because my parents might not afford it.Seens they are paying my sisters college and then they are gonna pay half of my brothers they might not be able to pay.STEM and college access is are project for girls build la i think it is a good idea because it helps people think about college and what would be a good college for there child.Some parents might not afford there child college so this could help them and us figure out what would be a good college for them.It should be a fun thing to do and hard work but it is better for everyone so this why i wanted to be in Girls Build L.A.
My name is Maria Zuniga and I am 12 years old.I study here in John Adams Middle school.I am proud to be in GBLA because I thought I wasn't going to be elected.Being in GBLA was very important to me because I think college is very important for girls and boys.That is why our group chose stem and college access.I wanted to join because of the fun I will have,but also to help parents find a way for their kids to get scholarships or find easier ways to help financially and emotionally. This isn't only going to help others,but if we win it will really help my parents pay my college.I think this is benefeting many people.I am looking towards a better future.

Hello, my name is Briana Sevilla, & I am a 7th grader in John Adams Middle School(JAMS). I wanted to be a part of GBLA (Girls Build Los Angeles) because I have a chance to improve our chances into getting into college. I can even improve my chances into getting into the school I want, which is USC. I want to get into USC because it is a very great school & it is close to where I live. Being in GBLA will be a big step for me & I'm not planning for it to go to waste. I will do what I can in my power to increase all women's chances into getting into college. Every women deserves to have an education & get into college. USC is a private school, which means that it will cost lots of money in order for me to pay my classes and school supplies. If my team & I win 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd place, we will all get money for college! This really means a lot for me! It will help me big time to afford the essentials I need to get into USC and even graduate from USC & I know I'm not the only one, I have 2 other sisters, I have an older sister that's in high school & a twin sister that is also in middle school, in fact, she is in my class. I really want & even hope that they will go into college and even have a good & successful life.
