Ms. Sumbry: Tell me about yourself and why you decide to come to the South Carolina Youth ChalleNGe Academy (SCYCA)?
Cadet Roberts: I graduated a cycle ago and I felt like SCYCA was the program for me. SCYCA has benefited me, by helping me become a man and helping me get into college.
Ms. Sumbry: Did SCYCA help you change your life?
Cadet Roberts: South Carolina Youth Challenge changed my life in so many ways. I am a better person than I was before I came. SCYCA help me change my future into a positive one. I am becoming a more discipline, respectful young man. SCYCA helped me with some personal things like getting off of probation and made me take responsibility for my own mistakes.
Ms. Sumbry: What are your future plans?
Cadet Roberts: My future plans are to get a job and go to Valdosta State University and to become more involved with my family.
I feel good about myself after taking the challenge. I have matured a lot, when I go out in public people see me as a different person. They see me as a young man not a little boy doing the same negative things he use to do. I have changed and South Carolina Youth Challenge made me who I am today.
Thank You SCYCA
