“Before becoming a Peer Ambassador my knowledge on sexual and reproductive health was very low, with the program it expanded that knowledge. The most exciting part was that I got to put that knowledge to use. I was able to speak out and advocate for sex ed. I felt like I was able to help others and spread the knowledge I learned.”
