Why Support ACT-SO?
"26 days ago ACT-SO has positively affected me in so many ways. I was extremely shy and introverted when I first joined the program my freshman year of high school. Ironically enough, that first year I decided to compete in oratory. Facing my fear of public speaking not only helped me out of my shell but it also led me to compete in more speech competitions all over the nation. Beyond all of that, I was also able to network with not only the nations brightest and most talented African-American students but professionals as well. ACTSO was absolutely life changing for me and I believe it helped shape me into the woman that I am today". - Manjit Golden
