When Carmelia came to Lost Boyz Inc. she was non-verbal in school or around any of her peers in the organization. Her mom approached the program director and asked if they would help her become more verbal. Once she realized that Lost Boyz Inc was a family-oriented group, she became more comfortable with the other kids and began to loosen up. One day during their Winter Clinic, Carmelia was being tutored by one of the teachers, and her mother noticed that she was having a full conversation with the teacher! With help from the donated equipment, Carmelia was even able to attend her first tournament with Lost Boyz Inc.
