Stories with Friends: Part 22

Perseverance and Grit

Youth, *Keith, has really modeled our core asset of Perseverance and Grit lately. After a tough week at home and school, Keith was excited to get out on his bike and have some fun. He connected with some other kids at the bike park and was watching them as they showed off their advanced tricks. *Keith decided to try a new trick, and moments into it, he crashed, hard. BUT he got right back up and didn't give up! The kids gave him encouragement to try it again; *Keith pushed through and was able to successfully complete the trick! Our Program Director, Nona, was right beside him cheering him on. *Youth name changed to protect family's privacy
