“AROA Magazine has given me the courage and strength to hold my head up high and walk with pride, while also being humble. I would never talk much in public nor the classroom until my encounter with Miss Jae. The encouraging words and motivation that she always gives was remarkable. It showed that all people aren't the same and that there is still love in the hearts people, even those you do not know. I am thankful that I became a part of the AROA family and got a chance to experience this love. This magazine and the people behind the scenes are amazing and to anyone that has an encounter with them will truly inspired. Ever since my encounter, I have been tremendously blessed. Thanks AROA”
