Do you have a life lesson that you wish you knew when you were younger? Did you experience things in life that seemed like they would never end? Did you grow as a person due to these circumstances?

Many times we go through things in life wishing we had a solution, someone to seek advice from, or simply someone to confide in. Many times we are placed in situations that we think will never get better.

Ladies & Gentleman, this is an opportunity to reflect on your past experiences and make a positive impact on the life of another. With your letter, you're making a difference in someone else's perspective and giving them hope.

Here are a few examples of themes that you may have been through & that the youth can relate to, but not limited to:

  • Bullying
  • Socio-Economic Challenges or Disadvantages
  • Raising Your Siblings
  • Social Acceptance
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Eating Disorders and Weight Issues

  • Dating
  • Loneliness
  • Sexuality
  • Pregnancy
  • Gangs
  • Low Academics
  • Poverty
  • Homelessness

  • Drugs
  • Abuse (Physical, Mental, Sexual)
  • Single Parent Homes
  • Divorce
  • Middle Child
  • Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment
