Guest Voice of Shawnta Pulliam: Teach Erie's youth to deal with emotions.

Negative emotions are feelings that we have when someone upsets us, harms us or takes us for granted by disrespecting or abusing who we are or are trying to become. These negative emotions can also emerge when we fall short of our own plans or the expectations of others. While negative emotions may result from situations and people that we have no control over, one of the worst negative emotional reactions is the emotion of fear, because we are reacting negatively to something that may never even occur or exist.

Dominique Kafondo, Nurturing Hearts StudentDominique Kafando struggled to stay in school just 12 months ago.  The Central Career and Technical School student had D's and F's on her report card, and had been assigned to Central's alternative-education school.  "I was missing a lot of classes," said Kafando, 18. "I didn't care much about school." A teacher referred Kafando to Nurturing Hearts, a local nonprofit organization that provides leadership and life skills for teenage girls.
