I feel that Boys & Girls Clubs is a part of my life I can never forget and leave behind.

Wednesday, 27 April 2011

Many aren’t as lucky as me to experience being a part of a Boys & Girls Clubs for more than half their lives. Being a member of Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove for eleven years has shown me its importance in my life.    

 

I began at Boys & Girls Clubs when I was in kindergarten. The reason I started going to the Club was because my parents needed a safe place for me to stay after school. Both of my parents worked late and weren’t able to take care of me and my older brother.

 

When I began attending the Club, I thought that I would never fit in, was very timid, and never made friends quickly. I was never the outgoing type. My first few days weren’t as bad as I thought it might be. In fact, the Club made a huge impact in my life. I thanked my parents each day for giving me the opportunity of being a part of Boys & Girls Clubs. I’m thankful that I was able to having a lovely Club to attend to, as well as have great memories that I will never forget.  

 

Boys & Girls Clubs will always be important to me because it has been a part of me for so long. I feel that Boys & Girls Clubs is a part of my life I can never forget and leave behind. Until this day, I have grown so much from being a shy, timid girl to a confident, hardworking young adult.

 

Since the Club has positively impacted my life, I dedicated most of my time at Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove and educating others on how special this Club is. In recent years I joined Keystone, which is also a part of Boys & Girls Clubs. Being part of Keystone, I influenced others teens to be part of Boys & Girls Clubs and how it will never be regretful. I shared with teens my many positive experiences with the Club, and that if they join they would also gain great experiences.  

 

I also became president of Keystone just to share my thoughts about this Club and also give back to this community for everything this Club has done for me. It has also given me the chance to express who I am. I don’t know what my life would be without being a part of this Club. 

 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove offered me a second family I can always go to, helped me mature to an adult, and a chance to influence others to see what this Club can do for them.
