These strong young people share with us their stories of who they once were, who they are now and who they want to be. For these youth, life has changed dramatically with stories only some can imagine. Who these young people are today is not necessarily who they always were nor who they will be. The bravery of these youth to share with us their stories and reflections is to be admired. These writings are part of a running workshop series. Feel free to comment, and workshop facilitators will share with authors.
