- Dear mentors, teachers, elders, and my friends,
You have impacted my life greatly. The memories I created in this program will be memories that I will cherish forever and hold dearly to my heart. I appreciate all the knowledge we exchanged, which I will take back and apply to my advocacy for my community. I wish the very best for all of you, thank you.

I developed self love, which I will take back to my family, school, and community and show them how to spread kindness and love to one another.
