I would just like to share how the CanTeen was to me in high school and the friends I have made. My parents and I still talk about how I used to be shy. One main reason that changed for me was the friendships, opportunities and the self-esteem I gained from joining/being a part of pride and the Teen Center. I really began feeling uncomfortable in my own skin and finally started having a voice, which I still have to this day, although it still sometimes gets me in trouble! I remember our trip to Louisville, the teen youth gathering with other groups in the area, and the camping trips we took. So, I guess what I’m saying is THANK YOU!!! I’m glad to hear you’re still going strong.
