MY WLA STORY + WHY I WANT TO PAY IT FORWARD
The first time I heard of WLA was in a letter I received in the mail saying my Wildlife Management teacher nominated me to go. I had never done anything like that before, so I wanted to try it. The 1st week was online and covered a large range of wildlife and nature sessions. The most interesting thing to me was how to take good nature photos. We also learned good leadership skills, like how to talk to people with the best effect. For the 2 day in-person camp we got to do many hands-on activities learning about conservation- they let me fire rocket canons!
I’m doing the Pay It Forward because I had a great time participating and want other kids to be able to go. Also, I received a scholarship to go so why not help raise money for others to get scholarships?
Thank you for helping me in Paying it Forward! ~Stephen
