My name is Diyar Dezay. I was in TF4. Besides learning to trust myself with handling tools and reading plans, I think TF has helped me learn mental toughness! You have to be patient! If you mess up, you have to either try again or FIX IT and that alone is a challenge. It forces me to think outside of the box. It is a skill that not many can do and I feel this program has helped me a lot with that. In fact, I craved a challenge like TF since I could no longer participate or mentor because of having a job, and that is why I began taking Calculus classes at my school. It was challenging at times like TF was and I loved that. Currently I am a senior at Lake Oswego High School and I plan to go to a 4 year university and major in Biochemistry.
