Testimonials

GOALS is such a great opportunity to get into the science field or to find your interest in whatever career. Because, you know, we’re all young and we don’t know what we want to to be or what field we’re going to go into, and it’s nice to have this opportunity to see if you’re interested in science or if you’re not. It’s something to allow girls like me to explore themselves, explore the world, explore science, and just run the world — because we never had that chance before — and I thank GOALS for that.”

“I’d recommend someone to apply to GOALS because it’s really life changing. Especially if you kind of come from the poverty side of town, you can’t always experience stuff like this. You get to meet new people, you get to find what you love. I recently figured out I love plants and another girl who was out on the trip with me figured out how much she loves water and the different types of things that live in water. GOALS really expands your horizons and it gives you a new perspective on life, and it’s really humbling because you learn to appreciate the small things like being able to wear perfume or just a little bit of mascara.”
