A Poem from a recent graduate
Okay, so this right here's for AYM
Thought the workshop would be so lame,
thought wrong, actually made me change.
I see things different now,
used to make myself miserable,
used to think I was invisible,
but now I look back
on when I used to call myself fat,
used to pull my hair and scream.
Thought there was no one there for me,
tried to take my life away,
not realizing I'd leave loved ones in pain,
not realizing this ain't no game.
You only live once,
you've got to live it up,
never give up you may succeed.
Live every moment,
laugh every day,
'cause you don't know when you're goin'
So try to earn each day!

Our AYM for Africa team!
We had a very successful trip to Malawi, Africa this summer! Our team of 7 partnered with the non profit buildOn and worked alongside villagers to build them a school. Thank you to all who supported us in getting there! This is a picture of the completed school in the village of Kauma, Malawi!
