Gary Life Education Initiative Is a big part of why I am the person I am today. They've help me gain higher self esteem, and do so much better in school because I'm hearing impaired. Without their help I don't know what would have happened... And as a result of everything that I learned from Gary life I am now a Senior with a GPA of 4.75 and I'm getting ready to go off to college on a full ride scholarship. I can't thank them enough for everything that they taught me.
