Stories from Pace Alachua

Ireland's Story

The moment I realized I could turn my life around was my second counseling session with Ms. Jessica – she really understood me. She helped me learn that I can’t change the world, but I can change how I react to things.

It is such an important lesson. There are girls here at Pace, including me, who never believed they could go to college. I feel I have hope again that I can earn a scholarship, go to college and study to be a vet. For the first time, I really believe I can do something with my life.
