We are halfway through the year and I wanted to share about the journey so far, what I’ve learned, and how PFO has impacted me. So far the year has been very eye opening and an impacting experience. The messages that are encouraged in PFO are simple and beautiful and I am glad I can be a part of them. PFO teaches you to accept yourself and others and to rid yourself of worries and doubts about yourself. PFO is somewhere where you can relax and be open and learn about yourself. I am more comfortable than before I came to PFO, and although I still have some work to do, I am happy to say that I am willing to give my time to PFO which will give me time to become even more comfortable everywhere. PFO is such an amazing organization when it comes to the Buddy Program. It is really amazing to see all of the teens guide the buddies and develop relationships, it is one of the most beautiful things. Anthology was an amazing concept and I really enjoyed committee meetings. I am really looking forward to the Arts Experiences where I will be in Musical Theatre and hopefully where I will be able to expand my comfort zone. I love to sing, so it will be really fun to experience a musical. My Small Group Leader is really nice and I love my small group. I am supported not only by them, but the rest of PFO, I have really liked my experience so far, and I am looking forward to even more memories yet to come.
