The stanly county lift program is close to graduation. Febuary 7th will be the last day of the teens that decided they wanted to change thier lives for good. They have came very far, some have changed and some have given up but even when those students gave up we still moved forward with what we had to get done.
The lift program helps students find a job but thats not the only thing that the lift teaches. It teaches students that they have a future and people out there do care. It also teaches confidence and self-esteem and how to deal with tough problems.
What i have learned in this program is patience, trust and self-esteem. In the begining of the program i was shy and couldnt trust anyone. I felt ugly and worthless, but now i feel like i can do anything. I trust alot more people then i did before, my anger has went down alot and im very close to getting a job. So I want to thank the lift program for everything it has done for me.
