Being apart of the upward bound program by the Dime Child Foundation is a great experience for me when I joined the program last year I was real quiet and didn’t know anybody I was basically anti social but I'm glad that I joined the program because it helped me step out of my comfort zone by being more sociable, Confident and getting the help I needed to move forward with school, and the experience to explore different colleges out of state.
