"I don't dream at night, I dream all day; I dream for a living."

Steven Spielberg


Chantale, you are so warm and caring that everyone feels completely comfortable sharing with you. You are non-judgmental, understanding, and know when to push and when to back down. You are amazing! We love you! I think that about says it. You truly are an extraordinary person who helps bring out the best in others. I am extremely grateful for this experience. I can't imagine how I would have gotten through without it. It is through your guidance that I know and believe in myself as an artist. It is through the skills, strategies, books, that you have taught/given me that even though I am nervous for my future, I can't wait to explore!
