Students from Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy and Mustang Leadership Partners traveled to Los Angeles in June for the LA Equus Film Festival where the documentary, When the Dust Settles, was screened. The students attended the VIP party and told about their experiences of being in the film and their personal stories of how bonding with wild horses has changed their lives. Kasidey mentioned that she relates to mustangs because she knows how it feels “to be the only person fighting against big odds”. The crowd enthusiastically applauded and wanted to know more about CGLA and MLP. They complimented the girls’ composure, deorum, and general stage presence. The trip was a great success where fun was had by all, including the chaperones.
