2011 Diamond in the RAW
People's Choice Award Winner

From the first day of Diamond in the Raw to now my mindset has changed. I can honestly say that I feel like a whole new person. Going back to school after the program I was so happy that my older sister told me about the program because I used numerous skills in school that I built in Diamond in the Raw.

My communication skills have got better and now I have no problem speaking in front of a crowd of people. I think outside of the box when it comes time for a essay or big project to be due thanks to Diamond in the Raw. Being in the program changed and built many characteristics about myself. I don't regret being in the program and I would love to take part in it again. The things I have learned are things I will never forget.
