One day I want to grow up and change the world!!!
Hi! My name is Joi Butler, and I'm a winner! I'm a 13-year old that's in 8th grade that loves basketball, Reeses Peanut Butter cups and eating at nice restaurants. I'm also an Honor Roll student, a purple belt in jujitsu, plays basketball, knows a little bit of Spanish and plays the baritone in the band. When I grow up, I want to be an Engineer like my late Daddy and write like my Mommy. My Mommy always taught me that education comes in many different forms and being a part of Girls Going Global is one way to receive a unique education. Not only will I be able to travel to Belize and learn about their culture, I'm sure this trip will also teach me some things about myself. I also have a short video at the bottom from when I was a Youth Achiever winner in 2013.
So PLEASE, help me help my Mommy send me to Belize!!!
