Sami Stitt from Stockbridge High School says “I thought it was interesting because I’ve never been to a panel like that before and I thought they had opened my eyes more about this. I’m not a part of the community but I am an ally so I understand their struggles and what they’re going through.”  

Arushi Mithal from Portage Northern High School says “I thought it was an interesting experience because we don’t get exposed to panels like this at school. It was cool to hear their perspectives on the community and learn that perspective for others and get the community more accepted.”

Vidalia Wenzlick from Ovid Elsie High School says
“I thought it was good and for the people who aren’t quite sure about the issues of the community that it was eye opening and let them learn.” 

Astrid Code from Portage Northern High School says
“It was cool to be able to hear under represented voices and to be able to ask the question they had been wondering but didn’t know who to ask. Also how to be more respectful to the community.”
