Hey TYWLS explorers! Today Brooklyn and Astoria campers were together :) IT WAS ALOT OF FUN! Today we danced to different types of music with Andrea. I enjoyed watching different dance moves from other people that you really don’t know or hang out with. From Astoria we had 2 voulenteers that taught us a dance or a dance move. :) Today was a lot of fun!
Today is July 26th, 2012

Hey TYWLS explorers, remember our theme #MyImpact, I’m not to young to make one? Well what is an impact you made on others? One impact I made was writing letters to Stella who has been going through rough things and rough times. I think that it was really nice by writing love letters to Stella. I think that Stella will be a much happier person after reading our letters. <3 <3 What did you make an impact on?

Message to my Past Self
During the week, I wish I knew many things that I know now. One thing I wish I knew was to ice-skate. But, yesterday (July 24, 2012) I learned a little bit but still, that counts. I am hoping that I learn how to balance and how to ice-skate without falling. Also today, I wish I knew how to make the beads tighter, but I kept practicing and practice makes perfect
Today was an amazing day. We spent the day with She’s the First :) Today we made beads. We made beads out of magazines, we did this for a fundraiser. We are trying to fundraise because we are trying to helpa girl name Helen in Uganda to to school. We are trying to raise $300. today is July 25th, 2012. Written by: Aldina Feratovic :)
On July 16th, the Astoria girls climbed aboard the Clearwater boat and learned about the Hudson River. “It’s smaller than the Nile, right?” Sara asked the Captain Beth.
The sail was so heavy, but the girls worked super hard to raise it and succeeded!
Thing made my day yesterday was a woman that we spoke who told us that she was the first one in her family to get married four times. But my group and I heard some really nice firsts that people what to do. One woman wanted to be the first to travel the world. Another said to open her own business. Really, the one that shocked me the most was how one woman named Monica wanted to be the first in her family to retire. I never realized of how a diverse place Manhattan is. People should appreciate this more often.
