"My first interaction with BBY was as a participant when I was 12-years-old. My parents had just gotten a divorce and I was going through a really hard time. I remember being able to escape the chaos I was entrenched in and being able to find light, peace, and life-long friends at BBY. I promised myself then that I would pay it forward as a counselor one day. 

Over a decade later, being a BBY counselor was one of the best experiences of my life. I was able to get to know such sweet, loving, and strong girls. They put their trials to the side and worked to love and lift each other's burdens. During BBY, my imperfect heart was filled with God's perfect love for each girl. I'm so grateful for BBY and all it stands for. My own trials and struggles were swallowed up in the joy of selfless service and being surrounded by such valiant women at 
Be the Best You Camp."
