My Y Story

Cristian Makes A Difference

HERE TO BRIGHTEN A CLOUDY DAY

“I have worked in the Y’s Youth Center for some years now, but there was one particular day where I realized that what I did had a significant impact.

This child, a frequent visitor, came in and I noticed she must have been having a rough day at school and looked very sad. After sitting down and listening to her, I proceeded to hopefully make her day better by cheering her up by playing games.

When she left, she looked at me and said, ‘Thanks for making my day better!’

I felt huge satisfaction knowing that I made a difference in her day.” -Cristian
