I learned a lot of life lessons, and it changed my train of thought.

This program is very useful. It teaches you life skills and tips that aren’t taught elsewhere. By being exposed to these things at an earlier age, you’ll be more prepared to take on the challenges of life and become more successful.

I learned to help others more and stop being so selfish with only trying to get what I want, and building myself to others visions and goals.

It really opened my mind to where I’m going to see myself in the future.

I have been limiting my friendship with some people who would have a negative effect on my life. I have been time managing myself and planning for what’s important.

I changed my way of thinking because I know what I want in the future and I take opportunities more seriously now.

I feel there is a lot to learn. . . . You will experience things that will help you grow. . . . I think this can help anyone. This can really change the way you work and think.

I like how it made me think about my life. I learn many things about my attitude.
