Open Doors is one organization that has truly provided me a wonderful experience beyond belief. Flashback to year 2001. This was the very first year that Open Doors started, and I am proud to say that I was a student in the program that year and throughout my entire middle school years. Open Doors taught me so many valuable lessons that I remembered and utilized throughout high school, but also preparing me to continuously better myself after completing this program. Now flash forward to today, 2012. This past May, I have completed my Bachelors of Business Administration from Northwood University in Midland, MI. Every time I was home, I would make it a priority to visit and volunteer at Open Doors or at least catch up with Annemarie, the Director. Open Doors has been a big influence on my life and my success, so I am so proud to say that I am Alumni from this program. Open Doors has played a positive role on my life that my younger brother also attended while he was in middle school. Now that he is in high school, he is a volunteer and is continuously involved with Open Doors to this day. Although, I am a little jealous of the continued experience that younger students now have with the program as they move up each year in high school. When we attended our program only lasted for three years. But I am glad to see these opportunities arise for students today, to continue on the right path that Open Doors provides. This organization is constantly finding new ways to not only improve themselves but continuously finding ways to help future generations be leaders and have much success. I can only imagine what the future will hold for Open Doors as it continues to expand. I truly believe that this organization positively impacts lives and does their best to make sure that we as students know that we are believed in and that anything we dream is definitely possible. And I believe it is with every students' start here at this program, where those dreams start to come true.
