This review has given me the opportunity to make a complete fool of myself- and this time, I think I'll take the bait! It is my honour to vouch for TYPF because it has not doubted me; because it has taught me discipline; because it has helped me differentiate talk and action; because it has made me look beyond myself; because it has allowed me the space to do the work I want to do, and not JUST what it requires of me; because it has taught me that what you create is much bigger yourself; because it has given me a better interdisciplinary education than my University did; because it has let me take risks, and MADE me take some, as well; because it has made me laugh at myself; because it has taught me responsibility, and sustainability; because it has given me the gift of confidence, which I can take anywhere and everywhere; and lastly, because I know I am always welcome, within its fold.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the sense of community it gives me.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
people who I will always respect.
