Why she’s awesome: Brenda is currently a member of Girls Today Leaders Tomorrow and is a junior in high school who enjoys playing the piano, reading, writing, and shopping. During the 2017-2018 GTLT Year, Brenda has been nominated by GTLT staff as someone who exemplifies leadership. She is very supportive of her peers and embodies responsibility and drive. As a result, Brenda was nominated and elected by her peers for GTLT’s Youth Advisory Council. Last year, Brenda was nominated and selected to attend the CECAAL College Tour as a result of her academic success which she will attend this November. Brenda expresses that she enjoys GTLT as it is an outlet for her to be herself without judgment.
