Nayeli Gallardo
Recipient of a $2500
Lucille Miller Wright National Scholarship

“When I joined Will Power/Won’t Power®, I learned the importance of taking care of my body and making smart decisions.”

After several years of participation, Nayeli joined a Girls Inc. of the Central Coast leadership program called ECHO (Education, Careers, Health, and Opportunities), where she learned about health, state policy, careers, public speaking, and higher education. Although she is still exploring several career options, Nayeli is very interested in the field of journalism to pursue her passion of informing and educating others. Nayeli shares that she would not have the self-confidence to accomplish her educational and career goals if she did not acknowledge her right to accept and appreciate her body. “I need to feel comfortable in my own body in order to enjoy doing what my mind and soul inspire me to do.”
