“Waking up this morning I never thought I’d have the opportunity to meet the most inspirational people in my life. I have sat through so many assemblies in that gym my whole childhood and this is one I will always remember. I’m not the best with words and talking to people, especially ones I don’t know. It’s the hardest thing. I truly appreciate your time and being able to open up and give a damn about what someone has to say. My 21 day challenge starts today. Everything happens for a reason and I truly live by that day to day. My past almost 18 years of life on this earth haven’t been easy but you all came into my life at the perfect time. I truly wish you all the absolute best and it’s not the end but the beginning.” -Anna
RISE TOGETHER had a great time working with Necedah High School and Middles school this March; educating nearly 400 students. Not only did youth take part in our Ignite & Engage Student Seminar but also in the CRAVE21 student-led global health challenge alongside our million story campaign.
