“When I came to E-Nini-Hassee a few days before my 17th birthday, I had the belief that everything I was going through wasn’t my fault. I blamed a lot of other people for the mistakes I had made, and it was causing me to make a lot more destructive choices. While I was at E-Nini-Hassee, I had the opportunity to rethink all that I had done, and it helped me turn my life around. The program gave me the chance to quit my old lifestyle and start over, doing things that I actually wanted to be doing. I met people who changed my life and gave me motivation. They inspired me and pushed me to be a better person. Today, I’m happier with myself, and my choices, and my life. I’m so grateful I had this experience before I got in over my head. I love E-Nini-Hassee and what it did for me. I’ll never forget what I learned there. It will be part of me for the rest of my life.” — Olivia D.
