Back when the sun was still shining (remember that?) I had the pleasure of meeting Shanika! She is one of my GK gals and I absolutely adored her. I was so impressed by how motivated and driven Shanika is. Her smile and laughter were infectious and my favorite thing about her had to be that she lives with integrity.
After years of working with kids who have struggled with addiction I have been so blessed to have the opportunity to “see the other side”. I am so honored that these graduates will share there hopes and dreams for the future with me when we meet. I am reminded that even though we live in a world that is broken there is resilience and hope. I love having a chance to meet teens who are driven and who refuse to give up, even when they are faced with challenges.
Shanika God bless you in your Senior Year and thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your senior year!
