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. The best thing about PFO so far have been the buddy events. Spending time with Trenton, my buddy, and Tyler, my buddy partner, has been great. Trenton always makes me laugh and helps me appreciate everyone who is a part of my life. I have learned to seize every moment because opportunities for meeting new friends, having new experiences or learning new things are abundant. PFO has impacted me the most in my every day life. There is a little PFO voice in the back of my head always reminding me of the four As. Attidude, acceptance, accountability and action. I always try to have a positive attitude and take advantage of every situation. I strive to accept everyone around me for who they are and understand where they are coming from. I stay accountable in regards to my school work and take responsibility for my decisions. When I have ideas or goals, I try my best to put them into action. Action has also impacted me when it comes to standing up for myself or others and speaking up. Overall, I can say that PFO has woven its way into my life for good and it has taught me many important lessons to live by.
