Sisters by Chance

"This program has impacted me by telling me that I can do anything I put my mind to. Ms. Cannon has helped me with this life learning; basically helping us with getting ready for the future and how it will impact [our] lives. [The program is] getting you ready for the future and what obstacles that you might face during life. [Sisters by Chance] ... motivates you and help you with your mental health."
