In general, judging by your writing, it seems clear that priority should be given to your continuation at Ohel Chana.

I trust that you have heard about the recent activity to encourage girls before their marriage, and even younger girls from the age of Chinuch, to light the candles on Erev Shabbos and Erev Yom Tov. This is an area where girls can spread the idea more easily among their friends, and accomplish more even than grownups. I trust that you have been very active in this direction, as well as your friends.

With blessing,
M. Schneerson
