“My daughter is a different child today to when she started. She had hit a wall, and I just felt the project got her over that by its approach.” – Parent 

“It was uplifting for her. It has given her more confidence in herself, in her own abilities. She still is talking about the experience. It was a safe space for her.”  – Parent
