Rachel Wonderlich

Extension and Outreach County Youth Coordinator

"The Anti-Bullying Presentation was very valuable for all participants. I felt the content was very applicable and easy to understand.

It's a hard topic to discuss, but one that is absolutely crucial. Diana did a wonderful job setting the tone for the topic and creating a safe atmosphere for all participants to fully engage". 

Jean Gaede | Faculty 

Interlochen Center for the Arts 

"This family went from tragedy to triumph

and the story needs to be heard by everyone.

"The story of Diana's family is one of struggle, courage, and hard-won triumph. I believe anyone involved with school-age children would benefit from hearing about this family’s determination to develop a plan that would enable their son to emerge as the confident, talented, and the loving young man that he is.”

Mary Issah, Executive Director
