“I enjoy this program everyday. I don’t know where or what I would be doing if I had never come here. I’ve been feeling really lucky recently to be at Steps and in New York City doing what I love everyday. Keep the challenges coming, keep pushing me, keep me busy. I’m ready for it, and I can do it. I think that is my new motto, or maybe that has always been my motto. Now I believe it.”
– Macy K.
