When we started, it was at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. And at that time, I felt very hopeless. The repetition of my days was draining and ultimately made me insensitive to society. And overtime, I felt like I had lost my purpose. That is until all this happened. Youth Advocacy reconnected me to society, to my community. It gave me a purpose and a goal to pursue. Through its ups and downs, opportunities, and hardships, I began to regain hope in the world around us. It gave me a voice again, showing me the beauty of community and connection. And I think that is what’s so special about this program; I get to give others a voice. I am incredibly grateful and optimistic about the future.
