When Shaquana joined the Lost Boyz program, she was getting into fights regularly, had lots of office referrals at school, and challenged authority. In 2014, Lost Boyz started a fast pitch softball team to reach more girls. She wanted to play but with 8 siblings, her parents often have to prioritize expenses and could not purchase the proper gear for her to play. Softball has helped her turn it around. This year, she was MVP, team captain, and power hitter. She has a positive attitude, a B average in school, and is respectful to coaches and parents.
