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. Ever since I walked into the first day of the PFO retreat, I knew this year was going to be great. I felt the excited energy from everyone, and we all were connected. Even though I didn’t know half the people yet, I felt like I could just go up to them and talk like old friends. When I found out who was on my committee, I was ecstatic! I had never written anything that was published in a book. I also didn’t really know the people in my committee and I was beyond excited to bond with them. The Anthology Committee was an awesome experience and a great opportunity to meet new teens in PFO. I’m so proud of what we were able to accomplish. Through PFO I have become more myself within the past few months and it has definitely helped me being the new kid at Providence!
