I found my favorite sport,soccer at FYI. It helps me because in school I need the skills to play kickball. I started to play the drums . I also restarted to play the guitar. There is also girls group which allows us to tell the staff members how we feel. This the best program ever because they had a sleep over and I went to central park for the first time ever. I always return because they support our decisions. I also found a woman that has the same last name as me. They are really fun. They also give us food. They are the best foundation in the world.

FYI played a major role in my life. I started at 10 Years old and now that I'm 27 I am still using the skills they taught me. I learned about responsibility and professionalism. I also learned how to be a good citizen in my community and the importance to serve.
