I found Girls’ Friendly Society, affectionately known as GFS at what I would consider the right time. Migrating from Jamaica to the US, I felt lost and out of place. I left my friends and the groups I had loved and participated in behind. GFS was introduced to me, and immediately I felt at home. I found GFS as a place to fellowship with other girls while having fun, and truth be told, it was all about having fun for me. I also found endless support, and love from the late Mrs. Viola Tapper and, my current branch advisor Shirley Brown. However, with my transition from a senior member to a leader, and the loss of Mrs. Tapper, it became more than just fun for me. It became a place where I wanted to give back to the younger generations; a place where I can return the love, support, and encouragement I received from those two phenomenal women. I am now a member of the national board, and I know Mrs. Tapper is smiling down on me with proud in her eyes. GFS is my heart; I sometimes make jokes saying, I bleed blue and white. I cannot imagine my life without GFS and my sisters.
