What students are saying…

Dear Ms. Hendley,

I would like to personally thank you so much for the experience you gave my peers and I through Teenshop’s 9th Residential College Preparatory Summer Program. I came back from this two week journey feeling like I was prepared to take on the world. With the connections I now have and new found confidence, I can truly say that this trip was one to be remembered. I feel blessed to have been able to attend such a rewarding program, because I know that not everyone is given such an amazing opportunity to expand their horizons and connect with successful people who look like them.

Your dedication to African-American girls is extremely honorable, and I am positive that I would not have gotten the same experience anywhere else.

Thank you very much,

Dear Ms. Hendley,

Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of the Bryn Mawr program. The experience gave me a renewed expectation of college and helped to dispell common myths. The valuable information given about scholarships will guide me in achieving a debt-free future. The various workshops expanded my leadership skills which will assist me in my student government position. Also, I am appreciative of all the business cards I collected and the valuable opportunity I had to network with professionals and community leaders. As I enter a new chapter in my life, I plan to keep in contact with the speakers as they have helped to further educate me tremendously. As I begin to prepare for college, I will take these lessons with me throughout my final year in high school to assist me in my personal and educational development.

Thank you again for the experience.
