Upon our return to NYC from Japan, we were pleasantly surprised by an e-mail from a person who shared our return flight from Tokyo. His kind words are amazing!
“I was on the flight from Tokyo to JFK on 8/13 on which your YPC group was returning from Japan. Despite my initial misgivings when I saw a large group of high schoolers getting onto the plane–sleep being the only consolation on such a long flight–I was quickly turned around: your singers were impressively mature, kind, and thoughtful with one another and were a pleasure to be around. A young woman sitting near me, Ms. Roman, was a natural leader of the sort so rarely seen. What a fantastic group of kids!
Whatever your organization is doing, it’s doing it right.
