PHOTOVOICE DAY 10 - E. Fournier

PHOTOVOICE - EMILY's FRIEND SWIMMING

DAY #10 - "A LIGHT IN THE DARK" - Today's mental health awareness feature, a Photovoice project of the Lewiston Youth Advisory Council and Healthy Androscoggin, is from LYAC member Emily Fournier who reflects on an activity that brings her comfort,

"This photo I took of one of my best friends. Swim is an outlet I found recently that helped me cope through tough times. The friends I made through swim are my people, the ones I lean on when times get tough. Swim symbolizes courage and stability to me, the thought of being in the pool with my closest friends competing to be the best we can be is always going to have a special place in my heart. When you find that one thing you truly cherish, you never want to let it go, and I never will. All of the memories I've made and bonds I've built will always stick with me. Swimming has helped me build friendships that will last a lifetime and memories that have shaped me into the person I am today."
