PRAISE FOR GET REAL
My mum really wanted me to go to Leadership Camp and she thought it would be good for me. I wasn’t convinced, I was so scared to meet new people. I went anyway thinking it would be really bad, but I’m so happy I did decide to go because I met some amazing people. It’s nothing like school at all, they are all really nice.
My experiences of this weekend were truly wonderful and I had the most fun time I’ve had in a long time. I love it, it just makes you feel so great and light and worthy and that you can do anything. I love all of you here at Get Real you are all so true and real and I love you all! My process was awesome it got so much stuff off me and most of it wasn’t even mine. I went into my power centre very well and I coped with the situation really well. The things I realised this weekend was that I can do anything and that I am awesome also that I am successful and can do anything… it’s awesome! I can do it, and I love these camps!
The weekend has made me feel free and safe with everyone I meet. The coaches are such good examples and have helped me set goals for my life.
Coming to Get Real has changed my life. The first time I came to these camps I was a troubled child and learning these tools has helped me change the way I see things and act. It has helped me stand up for who I am. It is because of Tam and Get Real that I am like I am today…. It wasn’t them that changed me, but it allowed me to change myself.
What I got out of Get Real was to let your emotions be free. Don’t bottle them up because you will slowly crumble from the pressure. Let them be free, trust me you will feel a lot better.
I loved the weekend! It gave me the chance to make friends with people from another country and also I finally got to find the real me. My favourite part about it was the campfire night because it was cool to burn away all the fake beliefs the group had… And we got to roast marshmellows! ☺ Doing the processes with the other teenagers was really good because it gives you help and guidance, but you feel like you are helping and motivating your partner. Hearing all the positive comments people gave me was so inspiring and it gave me the self confidence I needed. All the coaches and Tamsyn were all beautiful people that helped me through any difficulties I faced. I love you guys ☺ Thank you so much.
Get Real has been a blessing for me. It has been an experience that has enlightened me about emotions, thoughts and actions. I am now a better person and I am ready to face the world with any challenge because I know that I will be able to face it. All because of Tam, Sarah, Brett, Dex and Angel. It has been a gift for me and an experience that I will keep in my heart.
It’s a great experience full of adventure and excitement, a place to make friends with new people and be yourself.
It was easily 100 times better than I expected, it was an awesome weekend and I’m looking forward to the next one… thanks for the weekend
Originally I was sceptical about how Get Real would effect me. But after attending the weekend I met some amazing people who I hope will remain my life-long friends. I feel the weekend has given me an excellent feeling of self-worth and increased self-esteem, as I had to cope with issues and environments significantly outside the boundaries of my comfort zone. Thank you so much for this amazing experience which I will carry with me for my whole life!
