“ “Motivation; the key thing that guided me. Your class also taught me about fitness and how it can improve not only my body but also the way I think. I also was taught the meaning of resilience. Optimism was a huge concept you got through my head. Strength of character was the main thing I focused on.”- Deschun, age 17
