Francis Lewis High School
Richmond Hill, New York

“I leave with a confidence in myself, more than before. I will return to my community much better and stronger than when I left. This program is a huge privilege. It was a chance to leave home and get used to a life on my own. It taught me to trust in who I am and what I believe in. This program showed me how to accept myself, how to be comfortable with the uncomfortable, and not to apologize for being who I am.”
