On Monday, July 11 of 2016 a motivational speaker, Jon Schoonmaker was glad to come to the Siena Heights University campus in Dominican Hall to help boost, inspire, and motivate Upward Bound students. He played trust gaining games with us such as: chicken in a hen house, trust falling, etc.
Mr. Schoonmaker later gave us multi colored M&Ms. Red M&Ms stood for what made you angry, blue stood for what made you sad, green made you find something you need to improve in or grow, yellow stood for the things that made you happy, brown stood for the things you appreciate in the Earth. The best part you got to eat them after! By noticing these things, it’ll make you realize what you may need to change in your everyday life. For example add more things to make you happy and decrease the things that make you sad or angry.
We danced, sang songs, and most importantly we BONDED!
