"My experience with Grit has a been a rollercoaster ride. I started off with negative energy and came out with a whole load of positivity.
Although it was hard , there was lots of barriers , it was all worth it in the end. Especially for me, as rude as I was and difficult sometimes, the volunteers never gave up on me, or anyone else.
I’m grateful for the people I have met and created a close bond with over 6 days then 9 months. We all cried and laughed together like a real family. Overall, it was a great experience and I’m glad I took the opportunity."
