A Charleston teenager is getting a tremendous opportunity to learn how to help others.
Kel’lese Miller, 17, is heading to the Black Girls Rock Queens Camp for Leadership and Excellence. The camp is a two-week experience held on the campuses of Barnard College and Columbia University in New York City.
The camp hosts girls from all over the world, to teach them how to be leaders.
“I want to help people, but I’m not empowered enough to do so, so I need this to help me – help others,” Miller said.
Miller and her family will host several fundraisers to help fund travel expenses. They will be set up at the Save-A-Lot on Charleston’s West Side this weekend.
