look at the self-will and anger that got me here in the first
place. There are staff members who have been through the
program who have helped me to persevere, because they’ve
worked past some of the mistakes I’m still making. They’re
like mentors to me, and I really appreciate that. I’m helping
out as a leader in the kitchen while I’m here, and that‘s
good, because I feel like I’m giving something back. It’s hard
but I’m glad that I’m not where I was three months ago. I
really don’t want to go back to the way I was living. I believe
I can do better.
