If you want to hear about it, I’m afraid you’l just have to ask me. Why? Because htere’s so much to tell! To tease you, I’ll leave you with this picture. HOBY truly is an experience I shall never forget. Oh! And i you ask me I’ll hopefully havepictures to show you by then.

Guess what’s been on my mind. HOBY!!!! For those of you who don’t know what HOBY is, let me break it down for you. Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership. It’s a 3 day seminar for sophomores and it’s just pure awesomeness. I get to go up to Aspen Grove for 4 days (Wednesday to Saturday) and be a junior counselor. That means I get to help be in charge of about 10 or so sophomores and unlock their potential! What could be better?
The pictures above are from something I did with a few other HOBY alumni called a CLeW (Community Leadership Workshop). We planned it and everything. My brother-in-law attended as a panelist and we were honored to have him there. It was then I found out that he’s a HOBY alumni too! Cool, eh?
Anyways, we had our focus on the preforming arts. I got to be in charge of the drama kids. (I can’t imagine why.) The girl in the picture above is my group. ha ha We combined a few groups to make everything better. And it was!
One of the most memorable things about HOBY is Roger Anthony. He’s Australian and an absolutely amazing motivational speaker. I never get tired of listening to him. We were honored to have him be the keynote speaker at our CLeW. Who knew listening to someone for 4 hours could be so entertaining?
Well anyways, That’s what I shall be up to this week and I am EXCITED!!!!! Can’t you tell? I figured I’d stick this info up here for two reasons. 1) I’m terribly excited. 2) You’ll know what I’m talking about in future reference. Hopefully, I’ll have some pictures up at the end… of next week.
Wish me luck!
