Since becoming a DCA student, I have improved from having a fixed mindset to a growth
mindset. I remember in middle school I used to say, “I can't do this?” and “Why do I have to do
this?” Now I say “I will this semester with all A’s. Socially, I have become a better person by
communicating with new people. I have gained a lot of self-confidence in myself this past year,
and I am still trying to become an even better person. It’s thanks to DCA and the support of
people like you that I know I can be anything I choose to be. I have promise, and I have a future!
