Thank you so much for starting a local TWAW chapter for eastern Carolina!! I am learning so much as a newly armed woman. I was very intimidated to begin with, but soon have been able to feel confident and empowered to take charge of my safety and those close to me. Your classes are very informative but yet informal, and you can tell women are not afraid to ask questions or feel judged when sharing similar experiences. Very professional and safety is first!! LOVE IT! Am a proud member. Exciting to see it growing. Thanks again!
