During my time with YVCKC I have accomplished many things, from the first week to now, I have noticed a difference in myself. I’ve had to do some growing up to work with mainly college students. The memories that I have with this program will be with me forever. I had the great opportunity to meet YMCA Kansas City CEO, David Byrd. Also, I got to lead a project with the two most experienced leaders that I know: Amanda Myer and Chelsea Mann. I even got to express my intermediate talent at video making which I didn’t know I was proficient in. This summer was a blast; I’m glad I had the opportunity to spend it with YVCKC and work with the amazing team and student leaders who are so dedicated to their work!
