We are halfway through the PFO year and I wanted to share about the journey so far, what I’ve learned, and how PFO has impacted me. This year I was given the amazing role of a Small Group Leader. This means that I have my own group of PFO teens that stay with me throughout the year. I am the person that helps them and gets to watch them grow, I am here when they need someone to lean on or have any questions. It has been so great to be able to watch my members grow, but also step into the position of a leader. Helping PFO and supporting this incredible organization gives me so much joy and love. I have seen myself grow as well. Every week I learn something different about being a good leader, a quote that Jen Band said that really spoke to me, especially now that I’m in this position is “We grow as we go.” I am also doing the Musical Theatre Experience again and I am so excited! Last year was so much fun, and I cannot wait to be in another show. I love learning about musical theatre and working with the amazing people that help make the show. Jen, Burke, and Kelsey are some of the most amazing people that I have ever met and I have so much gratitude and love for them. Getting the chance to be in multiple shows that they have helped us teens shape is pretty cool. PFO has been an incredible journey so far and I am so excited for what is to come. PFO has made me so happy, and helped me be the person today! I am so glad that this organization came into my life.
