A select group of about 30 young latinas in the 11th and 12th grade at Lawrence High School were invited to participate in a program designed to inspire young Latina empowerment called Estrella Program.  State Representative Juana Matias and fellow latina professionals have been planning this unique program where students will participate in various workshops throughout the academic year that will allow them to develop skills including, but not limited to; public speaking, professional development, learning about distinct career paths and the importance of financial literacy.
