Meet Darhianys “Lula” Bethancourt. You may recognize Lula from our 2018 Girls Celebration, where she was selected to receive the Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation award. 
Lula has been a member of Girls Inc. for the past 6 years as a participant in Friendly PEERsuasion, afterschool program, and Summer STEM & Leadership. As she developed into a strong role model for her peers and younger members, Lula began look for volunteer opportunities within our organization. The commitment and determination she showcased throughout her Girls Inc. journey opened doors for greater leadership positions; she is now a valued employee facilitating Girls Inc. programming to our Tween girls.
Lula will be attending Quinsigamond Community College in the fall, where she will be majoring in Psychology. We are so proud of Lula and all she has become! Congratulations Lula!
