As reported on recently in The East Hampton Star, Ally Friedman '20 has been running her own tennis-based mentoring program for girls ages 7 to 10. Inspired by the I-Tri empowerment program, Ally said she focused her program "on girls who were about to go into middle school, and who might be caring too much about what others might think. Girls—and I think all girls in this 7 to 10 age range, are in the same boat, whether they’re athletic or not—who need to know how important they are, who need a boost when it comes to their feelings of self-worth. . . . It’s about more than tennis. Theresa has come in to talk to them, and I’ve had Greg Melita, who owns Hamptons Jiu Jitsu in Southampton, come in to teach them self-defense, and Hailey London, a health teacher at Ross, has talked with them about nutrition. . . . The idea is to connect them with the ingredients that can make for a happy life.”
