Meet Saida!

“Throughout my life, friendships, graduations, and classes have come and gone, but Bridges has been a constant. From activities such as 5K runs and the Lemonade Stand program, I have had the opportunity to create long-standing relationships and form memories that I truly cherish. As I take on college at Howard University, I am so excited to be in a position where I can give back to my community. Bridges taught me about volunteering, working hard, and life skills that would have taken me years to learn. I am so grateful for the experiences that I have gained from Bridges.”
