The YMCA of Greater Boston held an association-wide essay contest in the spring, asking our teens to tell us about their dreams and how the YMCA is helping them.  We received many wonderful submissions and decided the contest would not only have one winner, Kasandra Baptista from Huntington Avenue YMCA, but also two runners up - Andres Magra and Reda Darouanou.  Here is Reda Darouanou's inspiring journey with the YMCA.  Reda was a runner up in the contest and a teen member of the East Boston YMCA.  Stories like his show the importance of all youth being given the opportunity to discover themselves in a safe, fun and education environment.

My husband recently gave me a blue Jawbone UP wristband to monitor my progress toward walking 10,000 steps everyday.  I was skeptical at first about how this fitness tracking device would help me to achieve a healthy lifestyle.  After all, it's just a device tracking my daily activities.  However, having used it for awhile, I realize the amazing benefits of simply being aware of my physical activity during the day.
