How long have I been a part of the Fed?

I have been a member of the Fed since I was 14 or 15 and I am currently 19 years old smiley

Why did you decide to join up?

My first SCM I was actually forced into going by my social worker, so for a period of time I refused to become a member. That all changed when I actually started involving myself in the activities and socializing with other folks!

What would you say to a young person who is considering becoming involved with the Fed?

DOOOOOOO ITTTTTT!! You will not regret it! The Fed is a wonderful, diverse, loving, caring group of people. I consider this organization a huge part of my life and am beyond blessed to be a part of something so wholesome and positive.

What is my favorite Fed memory?

I could not pick just one or even two or three favorite memories, because each time there is an abundance of fantastic memories made heart

How has being involved in the Fed positively impacted my life?

Being involved with the Fed has impacted my life so positively. Not once has any of the staff or other members made me feel like I was less than worth it. I am so grateful there are things like the Fed to help out and to tell you the truth, I don't know where I would be if I hadn't have gotten involved 4-5 years ago.laughheart
