As we continue our journey on creating a vibrant, positive, and healthy future for our young people; we are all set and geared up to start our regular sessions in mid-June.
With this update we would want to share with you story of Alisha (name changed), who was part of Dream Life Skills Program,
Meet Alisha, a 15-year-old, who has been part of our Life skills through Sports and now she attends Life skills through Creative Arts Programme. Her father is a plumber and her mother is a home maker. Her two elder brothers Suraj and Adit are doing their studies.
The challenge: Alisha was not at all confident about attending the initial days of the Creative Arts sessions. She used to be very nervous when asked a question, had problems in mingling with other members in the group, and did not want to take initiative in any activity. However, after attending few sessions, with the help of group activities, she started to get involved in the group.
The Change: She now takes care of other children in the class to help them in case of any issues in understanding during sessions.
The Dream Power: Alisha says,“I am confident now. In the yoga class, when my teacher asks me to show the types of Asanas (Yoga postures); I show them without any hesitation. I take initiative in answering the teacher’s questions in my school. I grab opportunities to learn by expressing my view point. I can share my feelings now which helped me to get rid of my selfishness and it also helped me to know who my true friends are. I do not have stage fear now. For example, I did the ‘Master of Ceremony’ in the Children’s day celebration without any hurdle. This is because of the help from Dream A Dream classes. Now I feel I am thinking positively at each step. I want to become a Radio Jockey, my brother is my inspiration to do so. With the help of Dream A Dream, I am much more confident and I can achieve my dream.”
