Wars start every single day, just from differences in religion, culture, or ethnicity. Conflicts, disputes, and even wars can grow from disliking other cultures and religions. Most people know me as just a fun, caring person, and I purposely do not  get involved with politics and such. However, with all of the drama and such going around, it’s very hard to ignore it. Everywhere I go on social media, whether it’s Instagram, Snapchat, Youtube, or even just Google, articles and news reports are everywhere about conflicts and our nation’s government. I personally do have an opinion on all of these politics, but I hate to share it and to argue with people about it.

          I think certain skills are completely necessary: survival, courage, compassion, creativity, and bravery. The best way to learn is through practice.  I believe these are necessary skills to have throughout life, to have the fullest potential of your life. It is important to be bold and unique and try new things and be yourself.

         I think you can learn these things by practice, patience and perseverance and most of all not to give up.  I learned these skills from my past experiences at the football, school, Anthony Robbins, Landmark programs, and Antinanco girls retreats.

         This past fall season, I le...

I believe there are some very important skills that everyone needs to have in order to navigate through their future and the society of tomorrow.

In order to have healthy boundaries, we need to communicate what we are comfortable with and what is not for us. 

This is very important, to speak up for what we believe in and to express what is right.

  1. Collaboration- it is important for people to unde...

As you know, we’re in the year of 2019 and it’s no secret that our environment is changing rapidly. Over the past 100 years, we’ve seen the American Chestnut Tree gradually diminish. We could potentially see this tree go extinct within our lifetime! (That is if we don’t do anything about it, of course).

This Fall, we will be planting American Chestnut Trees in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Join us in making sure that this very vital tree doesn’t go extinct anytime soon. All volunteers are welcome to the Fall planting events which will also include educational presentations and information on how we can help plant trees and look after our environment. Adults and famil...

I want to be able to share the place I come from, just like I would share a piece of fresh Polish bread.” 
― Sana Szewczyk, Under a Ginkgo Tree and Other Stories

Indeed, both bread and natural treasures of Poland are not easy to erase from memory. After our last summer’s explorations, we have decided that we must go back.

The Summer of 2019 trip will be filled with art, music, sightseeing and outdoor adventures. Among highlights are the visits to the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork (the largest castle in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the picturesque old town and port of historic Gdansk. When outside of the cities, we will kayak down Krutynia Riv...
