NYLF Summer 2013 Nomination

As some of you may know, my oldest daughter was nominated for a summer program and attended this past July in Los Angeles, California.  NYLF stands for National Youth Leadership Forum, and the program offers forums on just a few select disciplines - medicine (my daughter's choice), Law & CSI, and National Security.  

These forums offer students the chance to learn about the three disciplines in depth and prepares them for academic achievement and future successful professional careers by way of oustanding field trips, in-class lessons, lectures and guest speakers - all while providing emphasis on leadership.  It is an excellent opportunity for students to participate in this program, as it is quite the learning experience.

While at the Good Samaritan Hospital, my daughter observed a total knee replacement surgery! 

Students stayed in the dorms at De Neve Plaza, University of California, LA. 
 The Evergreen Dorm is where all the female students stayed.
Here is the plaza (cafeteria is located where this picture was taken) and photos of the food that was served.

Students had to dissect a sheep's brain at the forum.
 
A field trip to University of California, Riverside.

She learned quite a bit during this trip, and she's eager to attend again, with hopes of attending the San Francisco session.  We just received the paperwork for her nomination for Summer 2013!  

This means that she is beginning her fundraising right NOW!!!  So, be on the lookout for special listings in our Etsy shop, with proceeds going directly to a pool of money for this specific trip.
