Last night’s ehoops session was one of the better ones that we had all year. We were set up in small groups so I got to learn a lot about the stories of the young adults in my group. Some of the stories were sad, some were really cool but it was awesome to hear from this group! They told me about their expereinces and taught me about their community, which I have never stepped foot in.
Getting to hear from all of them just made me think, you never know what someone is going through and quiet often we can be quick to judge. I saw strength in the stories of these kids and wonder how I would have reacted when I was their age. It really opened my eye’s to what some of these young peole are going through. Something I would like to focus on this semester is not so much concerning about how I can benefit from my own actions, but I’d like to focus on how my actions affect others in a positive way.
I look forward to sharing my experiences with my new focus in my future blogs. Thanks for reading.
