“My years at YAS shaped such a large part of who I am today. The creativity, the sacred vulnerability, the freedom I was gifted at such a young age granted me with a rare treasure of being fully self-aware…in the most delicate of ways.
Aware of empathy, compassion, anger, exhilaration, denial, celebration. The sensitivity to drive my soul–the fuel to my machine. The canvas on which I strive to color each and every day.
A note to say THANK YOU for teaching me more about myself than any self-help-guidance could compete with…for championing us on so fully, so smartly, so generously…for the allowed laughs, tears, blunders and accomplishments…for being a silent angel of whom still guides me in my adult life…and for continuing to donate your time to inspire, empower and encourage others with your extremely dedicated and unique light!”
