The Youth Inspire Community Day really opened my eyes to the future me. I learned so much and gained such useful knowledge about my life and myself. I am so inspired after this event and I know I will use this information in the future!
There are just those moments when you heard something and is suddenly inspired and everything makes sense! This is what you get out of DTBY!
I think Youth Inspire Community Day is a great way to build resilience. The event taught me a lot about confidence. It was inspiring listening to all the guest speakers and learning about their lives and resiliency stories. This event is a great way for youth to learn, experience, and build confidence.
