I have 3 words for you. Fortress is awesome. There are so many things that I could say that wouldn't even accurately describe how great this program is. I've only spent 2 days with this group of children and I can honestly say my life has already been affected by them. On our first day, I saw a light turn on in my mentee Taylor's eyes. We were doing math. I know I can't take credit for the change in Taylor's attitude and confidence in doing math, but to see the substantial difference it made in that one activity, and throughout the rest of the day, I felt more blessed than anyone in the world. It was awesome, and that's just one aspect of how awesome Fortress is.
