Rogers High School 

2020-21

  • I feel more prepared and more confident because of the welcoming and safe environment.  I also feel that I can be someone great and move on from the bad past.

  • It made me realize that I have to learn to love myself the way that I am. It also made me realize I don't have to feel pressured to do things like have a first kiss until I'm ready or the right person comes along and that you have to realize your self worth.

  • Over the last few days, I've learned a lot and it made me realize a lot of things. It made me understand my relationships a bit better, and it taught me that I should value myself and I have a lot of things ahead of me. Thank you for teaching us. It was very informative and will help a lot in the future.

  • I was told that I was worthy and valuable repeatedly and it made me second guess what I feel and think about myself.

  • I've been impacted by knowing that whatever choices I make can impact the rest of my life or future so it's very important that I make good choices now.

  • After this week I feel I am more able to help myself and others achieve their goals.

  • It's not too late to fix myself and I have to value myself.

  • It made me think about how important our decisions are. How important it is to love yourself first, to think about your future and your goals first instead of other people who may just be temporary.

  • This really helped me realize that choices now are not worth messing up my life and I need to work hard to achieve my goals.

  • I've learned a lot from this like how important I am and how my health can affect me. I will take better care of my body and make smarter choices.

  • This made me feel a little better about myself. I feel that I am worth more than I thought.

  • Thank you for making me feel important and that my past mistakes don't define my future.

  • The lessons made me feel like I'm not worthless and I still have to to live on.

  • This week of lessons has taught me about my self worth. These lessons have made me realize that I am still growing and that it is ok to mess up. I also learned not to make decisions now that'll affect the rest of my life.

  • I've been dealing with depression, being able to hear this made me change my point of view.

  • It impacted me to realize that I don't have to stay in with toxic people.

  • The impact these lessons had on me was that they motivated me to do better and to do my best in anything I want to do.

  • You made a major impact on me this whole week. I didn't know much about what I wanted to do in the future. I can be very impulsive and stubborn, and this helps with my weightlifting, but I need to start thinking before making a decision. I have made mistakes in the past due to social media, but I have fixed these mistakes. Today I have felt a lot more valuable. I also fought depression so I'm happy! Thank you!!

  • It opened my eyes to things I should be paying attention to, and it made me think to myself some things aren't worth the risk. I also could relate to a lot of things we talked about (relationships mostly) and it also helped me see more clearly on why things are the way they are. Thank you!!

  • I genuinely enjoyed this week. The teachings really made me think. When you showed the yardstick with how much of my life I have yet to live and how the things of the past won't matter as much. I can do this. Thank you so much.

  • I learned that I'm worth more than I think, and that I should have more faith in myself in order to pursue and achieve my dreams.

  • My mom passed away when I was six years old so this week has been very important to me. I have a stepmom but I don't talk to her about some of the things we covered this week, so I'm grateful for Reality Check for coming to educate high schoolers on things I never would have known about.

  • This lesson opened my mind up to think more positive and to know my self-worth.

  • The effect of Reality Check is that it motivated me and I realized how much potential I have.

  • I have had people tell me my worth a ton, but all this really put it into perspective. I never realized everything I do is a reflection of self worth.

  • I'm more aware of the STD's there is and how easily you can get them. I also feel more motivated and calm. Your words helped me a lot. I've been through some hard stuff and I wanted to give up 2 years ago, but here I am. Thank you.

  • I've been struggling with motivation in my life, finding who I am, what I like, what I want to be, all of that. It gave me reinforcement that I'll make it through this.

  • It made me realize even though I have been through more than most people know, I can get through it and be strong. I also learned how important it is to keep yourself clean from addiction.

  • This had me thinking about my marijuana usage and if I should stop.

  • I was able to realize that all the choices in life that I make can possibly change my life no matter how big or small.

  • You made me realize I'm important and taught me what my worth is.

  • These lessons reassured what I already knew and the values/boundaries I have placed in my life. I am in a relationship that is centered on values and purity but it can still be difficult, but this just reminded me of how good my boundaries are.
