This Is My Fire

Meet Jawon a 19 year old student in our program. He came to us during the summer of 2015. Certain personalities have a stand out quality, Jawon stands out amongst his peers. As a first time Xperience goer he waisted no time meeting new friends, engaging his Rap Coach, and being fully engaged in our Club Time. Jawon got so excited one night at the Xperience he passed out from dehydration! If that's not fired up, we don't know what is! What touches us most about his story is that in his words "before this event I didn't have a passion for anything. Now through this event I've written 4 goals and have strategized how I will accomplish them. We are family at ITF, and I'm excited to perform. Nobody downs you here, everybody encourages you. It's all positive minds." Jawon goes on to encourage everyone "What ever you are going to do, do it so well you surprise yourself." #thisismyfire
