For those interested in writing of any kind, Mills had this to share with the kids, “You can write about Nascar, you can write about video games. If you are passionate about animals, there’s someone out there who will pay you to write about those too.”

Writing encouragement also came from Miranda Roberts as she shared that her love of writing stemmed from journaling when she was barely a teenager and writing in class. She recounted how a teacher acknowledging and sharing with the entire class one of her more personal works actually awakened her realization that she could impact others with her writings. “I had kids I didn’t even really know coming up to me to tell me they liked what I wrote and some even said that it made them feel better about what they were going through.”

Andrew Starner gave a glimpse into his own personal experiences that ultimately brought him to an understanding that he needed to have a relationship with God. He knew there had to be something better for him beyond the decisions he was making and where his life was headed. “Following God’s plan for me brought me to a good place personally and opened up doors for my professional passion.”

Career Day at Eagle Village is conducted twice per year and provides the youth there glimpses into professional and personal roads to success from professionals in the local area. These events serve to encourage and ignite excitement about potential careers they could pursue.
