Day Three: . . . And Much More!

ThreeSixty has made me laugh, feel uncomfortable and smile so hard my cheeks hurt.

I’m Keleenah Yang, a 16-year-old Hmong girl attending ThreeSixty Journalism’s summer camp. Before the camp, I anticipated a boring program filled with generic writing prompts and information I already had. Although, ThreeSixty proved me wrong. I met energetic mentors well versed in writing who challenged me to do better. We play games and got to know the peers around us. It is not just a program that is there to help us write. It is there to help us grow and change as people, connect with our peers and expand our experiences while pushing us out of our comfort zones. ThreeSixty has made me laugh, feel uncomfortable and smile so hard my cheeks hurt. I have been pushed to my limits and more. And I know that it will only continue to change me. Being apart of this program has changed my life for the better and I am glad I have the opportunity to be here.
