"I'm really glad I've been able to come here . . ." by Lauren Hampton - Highland Church of Christ

I really enjoyed this week because of how much the young kids got into every activity throughout the day. There was no judging or shying away from silly actions and that is something rarely found anywhere else. My little buddy Janyiah was really sweet and sassy when she opened up to me. She was also very flexible, as evidenced by her gymnastics display for the talent show. I'm really glad I've been able to come here for the past three years and wouldn't give up my experiences here for anything in the world. I hope to work with Fortress or an organization similar to it in the future.  `
