The best time of my life!
The Summer Program really challenged me in all areas, and as a result I have gained confidence in myself, that I can do what I set my mind to and that I really can achieve my ultimate purpose - to make a difference in the world.
I've never smiled so much as I have on NGA... it made me, me again.
If you want to change your life in the best way possible - doing things you have always wished you would do - and being the person you have always wished you could be - then do it.
I learned the importance of plunging myself into the unknown, doing what is the scariest, all for the sake of growing, maturing, and becoming closer to my higher self. I am a new person.
The vision of NGA is to create young people who can live their dreams; who can do what they want to do because they believe that anything is possible, because anything is possible.
I'm so excited to go home and show my family, show my friends the new me.
This summer meant a lot to me because it's the first time in my life I feel I have changed a lot for the better.
It literally changed my life... I'm going to bring this home with me.
It really helped me discover who I was as a person and what I truly wanted to get out my life. It doesn't do justice to say it was only a life changing experience, I was able to move forward in my own life with confidence and a different perspective
Being on summer program was one of the best experiences I had in my whole life.
I am LOVING LIFE! I can honestly say that a huge and large part of it (if not the only) is because of the person that I was able to become during my time on NGA
NGA truly taught me how to connect with people deeply. I have made life-long friends on NGA, friends that I know will absolute certainty will be there for me no matter what.
Even in my most desperate hour, I remembered to expect miracles. To spring into action before I talk myself out of a great opportunity. To love like I've never been hurt. To persist, persist, persist no matter what, period. Because investment is never, ever wasted. But most importantly, my strength has been my determination to always be learning.
The variety of the NGA program gave my son a wealth of experience that would take a decade to accumulated otherwise.
All the relationships within our family have been touched and have grown deeper because of our daughter's experience on NGA.
I'm so glad you were able to come to Okayama.(*^_^*) I've been missing you very much since you all left.
I have had a son and a daughter at NGA. When they returned home after one year of NGA, my overwhelming impression of both of them was how much they had grown in such a short time. They left as teenagers and came back as experienced adults.
there were aspects of the family workshop that I never experiences before, and these were very profound for me personally...
I've already told many, many parents (on the East Coast and through emails) how great the NGA program is - a year of Godly experience, challenges and love and fun. It's life. I wish I would been able to participate.
The Summer Challenge opened my eyes to a deepness that I did not think was possible - a deepness not only in the new friends I made, but also within myself. I came to realizations that there was so much more that I could do in life, and that I had the strength and courage to do it.
I am in awe of my daughter and the life lessons she has learned in such a short time at such a young age. Her personal growth has been exponential.
The program has given Jacob, Renee and Rory an accelerated awareness of who they are and the limitless possibilities. I look back on my younger years of wandering and searching. Sometimes you just have to be in the right place at the right time and make that decision "to go for it"
NGA gave me the personal and professional tools I needed to accelerate my life into entirely new realms of leadership and success. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to dramatically improve their quality of life.
I have seen David find a focus for his passion through his involvement in NGA. David's experience has been a catalyst for our whole family to examine our choices and take more risks.
NGA has awakened me to my biggest dreams... which conveniently lay right behind my biggest fears.
The incredible thing that NGA does - is that it has fostered an environment that is centered around ownership, and that has allowed for my experiences to sink in much deeper - and my experiences have been ingrained in me because of it. NGA really does leave it up to you to find the answers for
yourself, and that is how I started to take my first steps of my journey of self discovery.
