Latasha – Age 16

"Being a teenage girl is no joke. You have to be focused and have some goals and dreams. If you don't, you can get really distracted and go through a lot of painful things that young girls should not have to go through. I'm in high school, and I know I'm going to college."

"My sister and I go to the Dream Academy because it’s a safe, fun place to be. We get to help the staff and the kids since we are older now and responsible. I really enjoy talking with my friends, since I have a lot to say."
