I think coming to Alateen has improved my communication. I feel better emotionally and I am more comfortable socially. Sharing my experiences has become easier. It has given me confidence to know that I may be helping people. Before I came to Alateen, I was reserved and quiet. I feel that my opening up is an example that Alateen helps people have better lives. Alateen has shown me a whole new perspective on things and I have learned so much.
