Malaury B.

Malaury joined NGT four years ago and loves the Girls Only Tennis Program. She is now in seventh grade and says the program gave her self-confidence that helped her transition well into middle school. She says “…the girls are all here for each other. So you want to try harder. We learn a lot about sportsmanship and urging others to do better. That’s not only for tennis. That’s for life. I want to help everyone do better. That’s why I want to become a doctor. I like to help. I help all I can here.”
