Who We Are.

Meet Wneki Borders
When she was 11 years old, Wneki’s mom passed away and Wneki was bounced around between family members. While living with her aunt in Yukon, she wasn’t able to come to the Boys & Girls Club and talks about what a difficult time in her life that was and how she started making bad choices about friends, lack of involvement in school, etc…
“When I was 5 years old, I wanted to be a mermaid. When I was 6 years old, I wanted to be a paleontologist. But from the time I was 7 until just a couple years ago, all I wanted to be was safe.”
