"Do your best and that's all you have to do."
Allison, Age 11



Children, ages 7-9, after attending and Aspiring Dreamz workshop provided the following testimonials.

"I liked how we got to expierience how everybody wants to be. It's very interesting how we think of the future our dreams and I know that I will probably try and use everything that you taught us and actively beome the doctor and or someone having to do with politics and how I know that no matter what anyone says I can't do something that I can do it. all in all it was great!

"I thought that the workshop was very interesting. I learned a lot, especially about how to set goals for my future. It was a great experience. My favorite part was making the dream dance collage."
"It was fun. It was something new and interesting. It was cool to get a group of girls with the same interest (dance) thinking about the future together."
When asked what are the most important things they learned from Practical Dreaming 101, children ages 11-12 wrote:
"The most important thing I learned when I watch cartoons I think about the persons voice in the cartoons. I learned from my dream board that I want to become a voice for a cartoon character. I think its helpful to practice my voice so I can get better. I thank you for the help you gave me."

I learned that you need a good attitude to keep your friends and to earn more friends. You also need to have a good attitude to do something you love and something you have always wanted to do. I learned that you need to always have confidence in yourself. If you don't have confidence in yourself you might just give up and say I can't do it. I learned to never say never. if you say I will never be able to do it. It is like not having confdence in yourself.

I learned that if you do something that you love you will do better at that than something you don't love. I also leaarned that you will do well in things if you have a positive attitude. I also learned that there are 3 types of goals.: Short-term, mid-term and long-term. I also learned that it is better to have a deadline so that you work harder on your goals.


Dear Kelly,
I am writing this letter as a way of showing my appreciations for what you have done for me. When you first came in, I must admint, I thought it was going to be dull and wouldn't do much. But once we got into it my view drastically changed. It provided me with time to think about the future and I have pondered it a lot since then. I could actually write down what I wanted and then see about putting it into action. I searched and found some of my greatest interestes, which i plan on pursuing now. Having a goal for the future really helps in the present, for you have something to look forward to, and somethign to strive for. I found that when you want to make life altering goals you really need to look into yourself. You may find things that you like and things that you dislike but you take the things that you dislike and try to change them around which will be to your advantage. Then you take your interests and put them to use. For example, I like photography, rock climbing, exploring an d creatures of all kinds. This has given me the idea of becoming a photographer for a company like National Geographic. you have also helped me make it even closer toward that goal by providing me with some equipment. I appreciate what you have done very much. I hope that you are able to continue this program and help others. Thank you.
