Welcome Home Cindy and Mohamed!

Our Poet-Athletes have returned from 

New York City and have lots to share! 

We sat down with them the other day and learned about their experiences! 

We are proud to say that they had a great time, met many new friends, and overcame challenges! 

"I saw a lot of places and I met a lot of new friends," Mohamed on his Big Apple experience.

Favorite thing about New York: New York Pizza!

Biggest Challenge: Flying. Mohamed was afraid the plane might crash. His first and only other time flying was when he was a baby and he did not remember. They experienced a rough landing, but everything turned out well!

"I feel like I gained a lot of confidence and I feel like I can actually talk to people without being nervous," Cindy on her Big Apple experience.

Favorite thing about New York: Sightseeing! She told us this was her number one priority when traveling and she was thrilled that they were able to go to N.Y.U., The High Line, Grand Central Station, The New York City Public Library, Times Square, and Rockefeller Center!   

Biggest Challenge: Cindy also found the landing hard, but she felt her biggest challenge was, "meeting and introducing myself to kids from around The States."
