“Club Esteem has impacted my life in such a positive way. I believe it really kept me on track because of the multiple guest speakers and enrichment activities. I also really appreciated going on college tours with Club Esteem. It made me more comfortable with going to college and adapting to a whole new lifestyle. I did not realize how much Club Esteem really impacted my life until I reached adulthood. I will always appreciate and have a special place in my heart for Club Esteem.”
