“On my way back to my dorm after studying at the library, I was nervous at every sound. I had heard stories about other girls getting attacked. In my Fullpower workshop, I discovered skills that replaced my fear with confidence. One night on my way home, a man jumped out of the bushes and tried to grab me! Without even thinking I was able to defend myself and got away. I am so grateful to Kidpower supporters like you for making it possible for me to learn these wonderful safety skills!”
– Alyssa, 20-year-old engineering student, Los Angeles, CA
