I first came here as a shy and quiet little girl. I knew no one. I had no friends. I was the new kid. I thought adapting to this environment would be difficult for me and it was. This memory that I have of the past is faint, but I can remember enough to know that I was afraid and didn’t know if I was going to fit in. I didn’t know if this was the right place for me.
Now I see that this was the right place for me. The shy and quiet girl that I once was is no more. It wasn’t easy getting here though. There were many obstacles that came in my way, but going through the Delphi Program gave me the skills and tools I needed to conquer these obstacles. Delphian showed me what I am capable of. It helped me figure out who I am and what I enjoy doing.
I never truly understood what the Delphian experience was until now. These experiences that I took away molded me into the person I am here today—strong, independent, and self-determined. I will never forget what Delphian had to offer me, and I will forever cherish all the memories I’ve made here.
