Thank you to Anna from CYT North Idaho for this special sentiment about the importance of finding good friends.
I am in middle school, which as most of you know can be very difficult. Since fifth grade I have struggled with bullies, most of say things like you’re not pretty, you’re not cool, you stink! Since I joined CYT North Idaho I have made many, many, many friends, so many that it seems like they are more family rather then friends. I have become friends with a certain group of people that are now very important in my life. Sure I have friends at school, but at CYT I have more friends then a person could ask for. Than you CYT for giving me this amazing experience of meet a lot of new people!
Thank you to Jessi, a CYT alum from CYT San Diego, for this reminder that it’s the little things that count:
When I was little I was in Our Gang and was taught by two teachers named Amy and Jason. I wasn’t a shy child but I went to the first day of class not knowing anyone and was a little scared so I brought my stuffed lion with me. Jason went out of his way to not only make me feel like I was part of the CYT family but also my stuffed lion too.
