"I'm really happy to be a part of Summer Search. I feel a bit more myself. I feel like it changed me for the better."
"My greatest success during my summer experience was meeting all the people on the trip and becoming great friends with all of them. There are many moments from the trip that I was proud of because of all the hard work we had accomplished together."
"My greatest success during my summer trip experience was having that huge confidence boost and proud feeling in myself when we would reach our goals and the top of the mountain, best feeling ever."
"My greatest success during my summer experience was becoming more confident in my leadership skills. Before my trip, I was the type of person that waited for someone else to do something before I did... My summer experience changed this in me because it taught me how to be a leader under circumstances where I am not experienced."
