When this contact turns into a friendship, she is invited to join a group called Freedom. Freedom helps teenagers become adults they can be proud of: by challenging them to question the world around them, to seek answers to tough questions, to get to know other people so they can make informed decisions about the choices that adults have to make.

This whole process changes the lives of herself, her family, her neighborhood, and the community. Yes, and maybe the country is changed for the better too.
