“The one place that has helped me”

In February, right before break, we asked our students to share with us how Campus Life has had an impact on their lives. Below is a story from one our newest teens who has only been coming out for a few months. Read here what Paula had to say:

“Before I came to Cambridge Campus Life I was in a bad crowd, I was with people that made me do things I would have never done in my life unless I wanted to. I knew this was not a good situation to be in.  I never could make friends that well because I tried to be someone that I wasn’t so I could not be alone.  When I went to Campus Life I thought I wasn’t going to like it, until I kept going and I started liking it because I made friends with people that would take me as I am. I wanted them to see the real me, not a fake me that did whatever they wanted and believed all there lies. We learned not to put on “Masks” in one of our lessons and I feel like I don’t have to do that at Campus Life. That is also the reason why I brought my two other friends, because they were having some problems in their life that made me worry for them so I thought of the one place that has helped me and I am hoping it can help others as well. “

This is what Campus Life is about; providing teens with a place to come to where they can learn about God and develop relationships with peers and loving Christian adults that will have a positive impact on their lives.
