My names Natasha, and I’ve been a fire fighter for one year now.
I’ve come to Camp My Way because I’ve been struggling a great amount and life had really begun to beat me down.
July of 2019 I was raped by a friend and May of this year my Uncle suddenly passed, the man I looked up to the most growing up and dearly loved in life had just dropped one day and out of the blue he was no longer with us.
A month after my Great Uncle passed away as well. My Great Uncle was my God Father and a man that made my mother and family grow up to be what we’ve become to this day.
Before my Uncle had passed I found I had ADHD and it shook my world quite a bit. Life only hit me harder and harder.
The day of my Great Uncle’s funeral I got a spiritual message from a bird that good luck was to come my way. A bird Diarrhea bombed my car. It was a strong message because I was singing a Ukrainian prayer as I watched a double rainbow fade from the sky and it was replaced by the warmth of a bright light through the clouds.
Months passed and then Terrance reached out to me. I knew my Great Uncle had sent him.
At this Camp I have found peace with my Great Uncle perishing and I couldn’t have accomplished that without a police officer named Reyno giving me a single hug. My new found brother ended my search for peace and I couldn’t be more grateful. His embrace made me feel as if I was in the arms of my loved one, one last time.
I’ve learned to be grateful and forgive every single day and I have learned my true strength thanks to Terrance and Jill.
The greatest tool I’ve picked up from Camp is the path I need to maintain to move my energy in the way needed for myself to thrive.
I am forever grateful for you Terrance, my miracle couldn’t have happened without you.
I’d love to thank Pursuit, A Dollar a day, the International Police Association, and Jasper Tourism for giving me the opportunity to come up to Camp My Way with my brothers and sisters.
