“I loved your program. I enjoyed it very much.”

“The activity will help me a lot to listen and know what are the different perspectives of different people. [It] can help [me] to understand what’s in their mind, and [why they are] thinking differently. [And can help me to] understand teenagers that don’t normally communicate and [help me] just judge them on what we saw [or on what they show]"
“My name is Maimouna. I really enjoyed the session. I was refreshing and good to learn about people’s different views.”
“In my hood there was only two options: join a gang or die, so I joined a gang. I stole, I was a drug dealer all through high-school. I met my husband through life high. He wanted me to stop and have a better life. After we got married I promise him I will stop and now I am pregnant with a daughter.
“For me it was a very beautiful experience, and I learned that I can communicate through the objects.”
