When I first came to MYLF I honestly did not know what to expect. I knew that i was going to meet new people with same similarities as myself and I was excited about this because I never had an opportunity like this before. Now, it is ok if you are afraid of meeting new people, it is ok if you say “I just don’t want to go”, but by not going to MYLF you would not know about the opportunities that lie right in your lap and you don’t know they even exist. Not only did I meet a lot of people that I am still friends with today but I learned a lot too. There is so much information out there that I didn’t know existed like MonTech or Voc. Rehab or things I didn’t understand about myself. If you don’t know what these opportunities are…trust me…..YOU ARE IN FOR A RIDE! I definitely learned more about myself in ONE WEEK than I have in 18 years.
MYLF helps you advocate for yourself. It teaches you how to lead your life and be independent. From the moment I got to MYLF, the staff treated me with a lot of respect, once they welcomed me in. The speakers are fantastic! MYLF is the best thing that will evr happen to you.
