MIC has made many changes in my life since it was launched on April 14, 2014. It gives me the courage and the ability to do much better than I usually did before. It has made me a better girl, and I have learned to do many more possible things.

The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation means to me that I am going to work harder, achieve more, serve God and obey my parents. It also encourages me to be confident in anything I am doing. The Foundation helps me to have a high self-esteem and be courageous. Mighty in character- MIC
