Cymone’s Story

We first met Cymone Butler in November 2018 when she was living at our of residential partner locations. She is currently studying social work at CPCC and will transfer for UNC Charlotte in the Spring of 2020. She wants to become a social worker and give back because of desire to help other girls who went through similar situations that she went through as a young girl. Thus, she is a Youth Ambassador for Foundation For Girls to be champion and a positive role model and inspire other girls to take charge of their lives.

Cymone was the recipient of the first Foundation For Girls internship as a Wells Fargo Fellow at Leading on Opportunity. Cymone was selected for this opportunity so she could get valuable experience that will serve her well in her personal and professional career.
