NEXTGEN – Youth Summit

Below are some quotes from our participants who attended the 2017 Youth Summit.

“The fear of facing your fears is harder to overcome than the fear itself. In order to overcome a fear you must face the giant that is hindering you from your success. This quote hit deep for me and I will never forget this experience” – D’atra Spencer
“It was amazing to spend quality time with people that had gone through similar things as myself. I felt it was easier to connect and listen the them. It’s amazing knowing that we have all pushed through to make something out of ourselves” – Felipe Zamora-Ramirez
“The biggest thing I took from the Youth Summit is to go through life with confidence and not hold myself back. My favorite speaker was Greg because he was passionate about what he said and what he meant and I can live my life thinking that I can do anything in life!” – Tyrique Frazier
“The Youth Summit was a good experience for me. I learned that we will never be successful unless we try to conquer our fears.” – Bridget Swaney
“I had a really good time at the Youth Summit This was my first time going and I really enjoyed everything and I want to thank everyone that pulled this together, it was great!” Rebecca Spivey
