We had a blast with our students this summer!  Learning about each other and growing into a more authentic self for the upcoming Freshman year in High School.

Our students where all 8th graders making that transition into High School, which I think we all remember that summer when everything was a clean slate.  I remember looking forward to meeting new people but scared that I wasn’t going to fit in,

This year we were honored to hear all about the stories and the fears of the new phase of their lives.  Knowing that we all have gone through the same thing, which I think is the key.  The knowledge that we all go through the same in some way shape or form makes transitions a bit easier.

I know that with each week our students became stronger!

Real Beauty: Uncovered at Eastside High School in Paterson, NJ

Yesterday was an emotional day for us.   We finished our 5 week workshop with the most amazing kids.  I really enjoyed spending time with the boys and girls learning and teaching them the importance of accepting our own uniqueness.   In the end I really felt the connection that made my heart leap for joy.  With the philosophy of Growing With The Seasons, I think or at least I hope we planted some seeds for the future.
