Success Story

My name is Erick Bejarano. I had the opportunity to participate in the Multicultural Youth Soccer Program with MIAG for the past three years. I felt that this program changed my life, because I learned many skills in this program like how to work in a team, improved my knowledge in soccer, helped me meet new people, and how to play soccer. I was able to develop many friendships there. Last year I volunteered in this wonderful program, and I helped little kids to improve their skills in soccer. In conclusion, I am very happy for attending this program. It has a great impact on my life.
