I invite you to read and reflect on my contentions on this website and in the guidebook, INVITING YOUTHS TO CLAIM THE POWER OF THEIR IMAGINATIONS.
However long ago it may have been—or perhaps not along at all—recall your own aspirations when you were a youth. What were they? What happened to them in your life? If these youthful aspirations have guided you, where are you with them now? If you discarded these aspirations in adulthood for whatever reason, what do you feel/think about them now
When you were a youth, did adults take your aspirations seriously? Were they regarded with respect?
I invite you to reflect and consider.
