Review for Get Lit Words Ignite, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Before joining Get Lit I felt as if I was in a constant state of imposter syndrome . I dealt with anxiety attacks that would make me shake when I talked to people. Big thanks to Diane Luby Lane and all the amazing people at Get Lit for seeing my potential and positively encouraging me out of my box. They have taught me coping skills I will use for the rest of my life. Get Lit helps people like me. I lived in Section 8, struggled financially, had a low self-confidence and was considering dropping out of high school . Get Lit helped me get poetry gigs that went to my bills, food, encouraged me to complete high school , and now I feel so much self-love I can't even believe I'm the same person. I have seen time and time again teens like me get the love we need to move out of tough situations. Get Lit is full of angels. This non-profit is a godsend. I don't know where my friends and I would be without it.
