JOURNEY

    • April 16, 2024 – Our students shared what was most meaningful to them from our recent Leadership Development Workshop. Diana said: “The most meaningful thing in the recent workshop conversation was that I again learned that in my everyday life, people we meet with or live with day-to-day are useful as well as meaningful, which means that they played a big role in shaping who I am today and what I gain day by day. For instance, in my personal evaluation that I made in my life there are some people who played a role in my daily achievements or development. For example, my high school head teacher was a person who used to always show me how capable I am in everything I do and that I am able to reach for anything that I wish to have in future. This gave me strength and also made me confident in understanding that I am able to do and reach where I want to be and this has been one of my motivations. Also, on the testimony from our fellow alumni who shared with us this story: he said that hard work was the main key to assisting him to get to where he is now, as well as focus. This shows that whenever you’re working hard and focus on what you do, even if you are met with some discouraging things or people, when a person has those two main things it helps me to understand that you can reach wherever and to whatever you want to have in the future.”
    • March 1, 2023 – In a recent Leadership Development Workshop, we explored the question, “How can you make sure the pain of your past doesn’t determine your future?” What stood out and meant the most to you in this workshop? Diana said: “The thing I can do to not let the pain of my past determine my future is to change my mindset and focus on my goals, like where I want to be in the future. Also, to stop thinking of and seeing myself as I was in the past.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Diana shared the biggest change in her life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “The biggest change in my life since the end of the COVID restrictions was that it taught me how to become a quick problem solver.”
