Our 'I'd Eat That' Kitchen Internship sees so many examples of positive growth throughout their sessions. This is just one of many amazing stories of a young person learning to hone their strengths and owning their unique talents. This excerpt was written by the I'd Eat That team.

"M, who was in a previous session, was unable to complete that session due to personal challenges. Initially, she struggled with her attendance and accountability and appeared distracted and unfocused during the time she was present. After dropping out of the first session, she was encouraged reapply when she was ready.
M reapplied and was accepted once again after a strong interview and being able to identify where she was ready to make improvements. M is not only finishing this session strong, she is also learning to embrace her leadership skills. She is always very helpful, takes initiative and supports her fellow interns when needed.
M is beginning to embrace her newly found confidence and is one of the most vocal in the class. We are proud to see that she is forging another path and her future looks very bright. M is applying to be in our advanced session where we see another opportunity for her to expand her leadership skills and gain even more confidence."

We are so grateful for New Day and excited about the Interprofessional collaboration with our UNM Health Sciences Center students --- now going virtual!! #UNM-HSC IPE
I wonder if this is the same group home that was sandwiched between the UNM fraternities and societies in the 80s.
It's been about 2 years since I went to New day I was 15 and going through one of my darkest times in my life I just wanted to post on here because without the help of the wonderful new day staff I wouldn't be where I am today I remember one staff the most because I lived her hugs Jen Kurtzmen she helped me the most I had a connection with her on a whole nother level all the staff helped me so much and I just want to thank New day for being my safe place where I didn't have to be afraid to deal with my problems they were my extra support when I couldn't support myself I am almost 18 now I have grown so much in life as well as advancing in my singing career I now have my own YouTube channel and I submitted an application for American idol and the voice nun of this would be possible if it was for the new day youth shelter helping me to see that I'm worth more then I had thought at the time Yours truly Renee Jenkins
