So grateful to all the youth who joined us for our Summer Retreat! What a powerful way to spend a weekend. You are all our teachers! Here is what the girls wrote to future girls considering becoming a Real Talk Teen...
"You're never going to find a space or an energy like the space Emily and Quetzal create. Do it, I promise you'll love it."
"Do it! Trying doesn't hurt but if you don't, you're missing out! Changed my life!"
"If you're not sure about joining a group or coming to a retreat, just go for it. You'll find people who can retreat to you and connect with you, and it will be worth it!"
"I liked going to this retreat and being part of this because it gives you a separate group that you can open up to. Also because you don't see these people every day it means that you can open up to them about your life and they can give you advice from an outsiders perspective."
"I liked this retreat because I could feel comfortable with opening up and others could easily say anything they wanted to."
"Please do this! You will not regret it! It leaves you with so much life experience."
"To anyone who wants to do this... DO IT!!! It's amazing and you'll love it!"
