Event testimonies from Students, Parents & Teachers
I came to the retreat today with my head down, but I left with it up and with hope. Listening to your speech and your life made me feel like you knew what I was going through. It made me feel like there was still hope and good things to look forward to in my life. It made me never want to do drugs again.JordiStudent
I just wanted to thank you for how much you changed me. I really took for granted how much my family loves me and you opened up my eyes that. Thank you for making me feel like I really do have a purpose in life, and that is to be myself.AlyssaStudent
Thank you for reminding me to take a breath, look around me, and say THANK YOU. To take the time and SEE my students for who they are. Thank you for reminding me how hard my life was in Grade 11 and I can’t keep assuming all these kids have it together. And thank you for showing me how to be there for them when they need it.AnonymousGrade 11 Teacher
I had no idea what to expect. As a parent I need help and everything that was talked about helped me more than you will ever know.Anonymous2016 Parent Conference attendee
Your stories and humor that you incorporated into your talks were wonderful. It helped me relate. I pledge to you and the entire world, that I will try my best to be myself. I will no longer be afraid of judgment.MatthewStudent

I'm so glad I was able to see your presentation. At first I didn't think I would like it, but as soon as you started talking I had so much fun. All the things you said were so funny. I am definitely going to encourage my parents to come. They would enjoy it.RyanStudent
