I want to tell you how Amyra talks about how the Value Academy has impacted her. She says it’s because of her time in the Value Academy that she’s able to deal with her feelings about her dad more. I am so thankful for your investment in her life!!! I can see the difference that it has made in her attending the V.A.Shanel
I have always hated change. I like the idea of consistency. I really enjoy spending time by myself. But with the Value Academy, I slowly improved. I know that I can talk to people and I am starting to be more social. Through this program I was able to be vulnerable.Priscilla
At first, I told myself I wasn’t going to like it because the fact that we had to talk about ourselves, emotionally, physically and mentally. One thing was for sure I knew I didn’t want to talk about all that, the reason why was because I didn’t want anyone to know about my feelings inside. Dr.Ricks is a very cool instructor. I say that because she brought me out the box emotionally, physically, and mentally. There were things that I talked about with Dr. Ricks that I would’ve never talked about. I learned many things like never feel like you don’t matter and always know that you have value in this world even if no one says you don’t. Also know that you’re a gift to the world and when you put those two together you will be very untouchable. Thank you Dr. Ricks for encouraging me to be who I am today.Shayla
