NCCWSL Scholarships

Since attending NCCWSL, I’ve been afforded opportunities to speak all over the country, and recently, I had the chance to speak at the White House about the health of trans women in my home state of Mississippi. I would never have had the courage to speak up if I had not applied for a NCCWSL scholarship.
