I am a grade 12 , 16 year-old female from Caledonia Senior Secondary in Terrace BC. Today I took part in the Safeteen work shop with one of your instructors named Anna.
I just wanted to say how good I felt after the workshop was over. (NOT because it was over but because I learned a lot haha) I felt more confident about myself and about being a female. There have been countless times where I have felt like ” the little girl” because of the way guys treat me or even with other females and the “gossip” etc. Never once did I ever know what to do in ANY of the situations I’ve been in. And even when talking to my parents and lately my friends too I’ve used my “inner Bitch” and it just gets me into a LOT of trouble. There are so many creepy guys in this small “city” I live in. And the problem in such a small “city” is that you can’t show anyone how fragile you really are and if you do…you have to have a strong backbone to back you up and I just wanted to say thank you for helping to bring that out in me. I feel that you have made a difference in not only mine but the other 30 some odd girls who took part in the full workshop today here at Caledonia.
