"I wanted to thank you for inviting my daughter to participate in this Project. She was very hesitant at first – thinking this was just another thing that mom was making her do. However, she came home from the first day inspired and is still talking about what she learned and things she is re-thinking as a result of the event. This is such a challenging time – starting high school, facing a pandemic, navigating social media, etc. The 3 days really seemed to boost her confidence and help her feel more comfortable about moving forward. Thank you again for a very valuable experience.”
