I Faced My Fears and I Found My Power at Teen Camp


Below you can read how Caroline used just the few weeks she had at camp to transform her life. It’s been amazing to watch her learn and grow.

Caroline’s Story

Signing up for the Feel Your Fear, Find Your Power workshop was one of the best decisions I have ever made. When I first went to OTC, I was 13 and I was extremely shy and unconfident. In a way, you could say I was broken. Growing up with learning difficulties and having trouble making friends made growing up very hard. So, when I signed up for that workshop, I was expecting to learn a bit and maybe make some changes in my life. But, boy, I had no clue what was in store for me (in a good way).

The changes that I have made over the last six years are actually quite mind-blowing to me. For one, my confidence has grown exponentially. My self-worth has also grown so much. I never truly had love for myself until after many years of work after the workshop. I was always looking for that someone special to fill that empty void in me. Now, I am no longer looking because I have self-love and I know the right person will come at the right time. I am not empty anymore. I am full of life and of happiness.

Second thing that changed big time for me was my body and my health. I use to be what they call skinny fat. I was always skinny but had no muscle or anything of the like. Now I’m stronger physically, mentally, and emotionally than ever and I am healthier than I ever thought possible. By the time you are reading this, it will be in July time, and by then, I will have graduated from high school.

Right now as I am writing this, I am only four days away from graduating high school. I couldn’t be happier these days, and I am so looking forward to my future at High Point University. Sure there are still things I need to work on, but I am always going to have something to work on, and so does everyone else. Nancy’s workshop changed my life for the better, and I found an angel. She is truly amazing.”
