I came to RHP my junior year, and I found myself improving a lot in just a few months. I started to put in effort in my schoolwork and actually started to believe in myself. I not only passed my math class for the first time ever, but also received a math award, which I’m still surprised about a year later.

Change is not easy to overcome but I have started to see small differences around me and I have continued to trust others. Christianity is a lifestyle that I’ve learned to adopt not because my parents made me, but because of the positive effects that it has on my life.

Being vegan has allowed me to become more independent. I used to come home every day with food ready for me at the table, and the second I stepped in through the door I could smell my mom’s delicious food. Although I miss having cooked food ready to come home to, I started looking forward to cooking for myself. I still eat some form of the foods I was raised with, but I have adapted them a bit. I have developed a skill I think all of us need to live a sustainable life, I learned how to cook for myself.
