What were your expectations before going into the Yellow Lantern course?
My expectations were that it would be very strict and would try and teach me how to be better at speaking to the public.
What surprised you about it?
Well Yellow Lantern showed me how to work at my own pace in a friendly environment and be completely ok with who I am. Yellow Lantern didn't force me into anything. My expectations were completely wrong! I'm so happy with the course.
What did you learn the most about in the course?
I learned that public speaking isn't about perfection or making no mistakes. I learned that confidence isn't something that can be taught, but it's something that you can find in yourself when you accept who you are.
How is Yellow Lantern still helping you today?
Although I finished the course last year, I have so much more confidence than ever before! And not only that, I've been offered to do things like photo shoots and attend leadership camps. Yellow Lantern has inspired me to not be afraid to stand up for what I believe in. I feel like I have the confidence boost that I needed especially now that I am in high school.
