I am a participant in year 5 (LIT) and before I came to Trails, I was very lost. I didn’t know my strengths and dwelled on my weaknesses and lacked goals and work ethic. Being at Trails gave me an opportunity to learn about myself and become a better well-rounded individual who is more goal-oriented. Without Trails, I highly doubt that I would be striving to have a profession in psychology or pediatric nursing. Thank you for being the reason I’ve been given the opportunity to better myself and experience new things.
