Akira [c/o 2023]
I am Akira and attend Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy. I have been a member of Mustang Leadership Partners (MLP) since January 9, 2019. I’ve learned unique things about the wild American mustang, mostly from a 2009 Kiger mare from Oregon named Lily. Ms. Sue Anne adopted her in 2011 when she was 2 years old and pregnant. Her filly was born at the farm and is now living at another barn in Tennessee.
Lily has challenged me to not be afraid of the unknown. She has helped me take risks without being nervous. I have learned so much from her and some of the other mustangs too. She is a great mentor, coach and teacher. I feel that I can take control of and conquer any uncomfortable situation because of my relationship and strong bond with Lily.
