A heartfelt letter from a grateful youth

Dear Project POOCH,

Hello to everyone at POOCH. I was just doing a homework assignment and was thinking of how much POOCH has helped me through the last few years and after my release, so I decided to write a letter of gratitude. I could not have written this letter if it wasn’t for POOCH. You got me this computer and I don’t have to use my brother’s computer every time I have an assignment. I would not have gone to college because of my financial status but thanks to Project POOCH’s support, I’m in college studying and learning hard. Also, I realized some of the most important skills like: patience, compassion, and responsibility. I need to have patience with some of my professors and the people I’m surrounded by. I need to have compassion for other people. And most importantly is responsibility. I use it every day with college, looking for work and managing my time so I can be productive. I am making sure the things I do are responsible so I don’t end up where I was.

It’s just nice to know that there are people that want me to do well and believe in me. That drives me to do better than just being good or average. Thank you again for everything you have done for me and for all things you are doing for others.

Sincerely,

Ivan
