"Write Around Portland has changed my life in so many ways. I've learned to trust people and write feelings...everyone gave me great encouragement. I was even afraid to ride the Max, and now I ride the Max alone and look forward to every day...I want to write forever."
-Leah R., Write Around Portland Participant
