Testimonials

Jasmine | Age 17

Nurturing Hearts has changed my attitude completely. I’ve been through so much in my life. If it wasn’t for this program, I don’t know if some of my situations I went through would have came out so smooth and calm. One situation I was in occurred last year. My mother’s fiancé had just got out of jail, no problem with that, I was happy. She started taking money my father gives me for support and started giving it to him and used it for bills and other expenses. I started going without things. Sure I wanted things everyone else wanted, but what 15 or 16-year-old girl wouldn’t? I put myself aside because they said they needed it. I went without so many things to make them happy, so that I wouldn’t seem like I was being selfish.

Alyissa | Age 16

I’m here to let everyone know how excited I am to be with the Nurturing hearts group, how proud I am of myself, and how much I’ve changed since Ms. Shawnta’ walked into my life. Before I was introduced to this group, I didn’t think I was good enough to hold my head up and be proud of whom I was and the family I came from. I didn’t think that people would accept me because I wasn’t as pretty as the other girls around me and I didn’t believe in myself. I didn’t think I would be able to make it through the rest of my school years. Things used to be so hard on me, I felt as if I couldn’t take it anymore! Just in time, Nurturing Hearts took time out to help me move on, get my head on straight and showed me a way to being a better person. They gave me hope that I could make it and that I am just as good as everyone else.

Janelle | Age 17

My life was chaos and now after being in Nurturing Hearts, I feel like I can get through it without thinking down on myself. I feel like I’m higher and have come so far. I am so happy to be in this program. Thank you.

Sarah | Age 16

Nurturing Hearts is a very good program to stabilize young ladies in the process of growing into smart, beautiful, and strong women. It helped me think about important issues such as drugs, sex, school, friends and decisions that would have an effect on my life either now or later.

Aysha | Age 15

This program to me is a learning experience, because if I had changed, I would still be that insecure person that put myself down, and didn’t care what people said. I look in the mirror every day and I tell myself that I am beautiful. I am a beautiful person inside and out. Graduated Highschool GPA 3.0 Attends College in Atlanta
