Dear Blue Heron supporters,
I would like to say a few words about how grateful I am to you and about how much you have contributed to my growth, both personally and professionally.
You have showered me with kindness, understanding, interest, love, and emotional support in addition to financial help. You have continued to help me overcome obstacles when I didn’t believe they could be. Your guidance, wisdom and advice have proven to be invaluable on my way to success and accomplishment. These gifts have enabled me to continue when I said I couldn’t do it anymore, given me energy and power when I felt I had none left. You make up a wonderful family for which I am forever grateful.
At first, I couldn’t conceive that having a mentor would be so important. I was not in a place where I was ready to let new people into my life ( I was not very communicative. I was keeping to myself a lot. I was very insecure.). It was hard for me and I was scared, but now, four years later, I consider Simona Bot to be like a “second mother”. Things have changed so much in these four years and I see how lucky I am. Simona helped me to gain confidence in myself, to treasure the beautiful moments and to never lose hope. Thank you, Simona, for everything you have done for me and for helping me to become the person that I am today.
There is so much more to say about the BH family but overall I just want to say THANK YOU!
