Quotes from the youth
I found myself. I am a changed person.
The trip to Ghana made me realize I owe my mom an apology. I have not been taking school seriously. I’m going to get my high school diploma because I want to make my mom proud of me.
I feel like I learned from this trip. I found my self worth as a person. I learned that I wouldn’t be here today were it not for my ancestors being so strong. I want to be strong like them.
After the trip to Ghana, I looked at myself and saw somebody. If I step up and do what I’m suppose to do then I can be somebody,…and, I can help people around me be somebody.
