Our Results: Deeper Reflection<br />“Many of the questions in the quizzes really made me think... and look back on past experiences and how I have now become a better person for no longer having those who made me question right from wrong still in my life. I feel that learning to stand up for what is wrong took me a little while to grasp because I didn't want to lose friends, but now through student leadership I have learned that your true friends wont make you question their actions or your own, and won’t allow you to put yourself in those types of situations. I feel that having the biggest support system of my fellow student leaders have helped me grow and become a better person, and I know I would not make them compromise their values, just as they would not make me.”<br />

Reflection<br />“I have already changed and am making better decisions everyday. I have become more focused on school and doing my best rather than worrying about what my friends want me to do. The friends in my life that are making bad decisions and who are not bettering my life, I am slowly beginning to distance myself and spend more time with the people who have the same outlook on life as I do. Mainly, I’ve turned my focus to myself and my school work to better myself emotionally and physically as I move forward”.<br />
