2015 Runner-Up!

Why does she WANT to go to school?

 I now BELIEVE that I am able to accomplish graduating. I’d also like to be one of the

first people in my family

to achieve completing college.

Being at Wellspring impacted my life in many different ways.
It showed me what it’s like to have high self-esteem;
it also showed me how to cope with my emotions. ~L
