Limavady and Portrush youth group was an amazing experience. We got to work with a bunch of different kids and reach out and connect in a way they are not use to. We played games and got the kids to open up a little more than they are use to. Pictured below are three kids that were in my group, and I got to know a little about all their stories. I would’ve never thought it would be so easy to impact someone’s life and be able to give them that extra boost they need some days.
I am so fortunate and lucky to be in an environment with amazing people. I am truly grateful to be apart of this program. The two sessions went amazing and we were able to connect with all the kids we encountered. It is sessions like these that make this whole program worth it! Sport Changes Life is going to impact my life in so many ways because I am able to give back to the community.
After doing the sessions we got to visit Portrush, and it is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! All of us together had a blast! We also went to Barry’s Amusement and a lot of us got on the ride the Big Dipper which was not the safest roller coaster hahah! We all were screaming the whole time and were laughing because we couldn’t believe that we went on it!
After that a couple of us walked down to the beach and it was amazing. The water wasn’t that cold and we were able to get some amazing pictures! The pictures don’t do it justice but it was beautiful. There were some surfing lessons going on so that was pretty neat to see as well. Overall these past 10 days with everyone have been amazing and so memorable!
I am extremely sad to say by to all the other scholars, we most definitely made the most out of our time!
