There are no words to thank YES enough for embracing me and for all their magnificent and wonderful support. From my heart I thank the YES staff for being so amazing, and for being all the time so positive and supportive through the whole process. When I needed help they embraced me and gave me confidence, and made me feel capable of making my dreams true, and also helped me to build my skills. I will always keep in my mind this episode of my life when challenges seem so big: YES held me, helped me, and made me fly.
