"Choose2Matter was a transformative experience. We set aside our own insecurities and misconceptions and worked towards finding solutions to our heartbreaks. It turns out high school is a perfect place to start a revolution."
"Thank you for reminding me of the root of my passion, and for giving me hope and motivation. Keep doing amazing things for the world. Thank you for allowing me to try to do the same."
"I told students, 'You matter. You are important. No matter what I value you. You are unique.' You would have thought they had all won the lottery. Some students told me they had never been told that."
"Something remarkable happened Thursday. It will no doubt influence students forever. Empowerment means giving others the tools to change their lives. It's thinking outside the box. We should all try thinking that way. It just might help us solve the world's problems."
"I cried today because of how grateful I was for y’all to come. Y’all saved my life because I felt like I didn’t matter to the world. Then you showed me I do matter. I realized suicide isn’t the answer. Yes I have my tiger stripes but I’m going to win this battle thanks to you :)"
