Where Lasting Relationships are Formed

Katie Wade, Youth Intern at Chapel Hill 

Working at Project Transformation has taught me so much already. I have learned to be more open and let people get to know me and not hold so many walls up. This summer, I have made so many friends that I can see being in my life for a long time. I have also formed relationships with some of the youth that I work with – relationships I will never forget or be able to match.

For example, I have formed a strong relationship with one student in the youth program at Chapel Hill. At the beginning, he seemed to only want to talk and not participate in activities. Once we got to know each other better though, he listens and engages in the program. Now, anytime he learns something or needs something, I am the first person he comes to! He wants to make me proud of him and that means the world to me.

I can’t wait to see what other relationships will form and adventures I will have this summer!
