When I arrived at The Haven, I felt very low and had no motivation to carry out my hopes and dreams. During Come Alive, I learned so much about myself, my relations with others. I cultivated many deep relationships. When I left, I felt more energized than I had in years! Ready to move on and carry out the rest of my life with enthusiasm.
