Stories from Pace Citrus

Kiri's Story

“My name is Kiri, and I am 17. I’ve struggled with panic disorders, including agoraphobia, for as long as I can recall. School was overwhelming, and home wasn’t much better. This led me to Pace Citrus. At Pace, I can be myself; Pace provides me with the safe and supportive environment I crave and is preparing me for my future. I plan to pursue environmental science and eventually run a sustainable farm. It’s important to share my truth and what Pace has done for me; I admire the work of Pace and plan to pay it forward.”
