“I like that you can express yourself without someone judging me.”
“I loved that I wasn’t judged for my work.”
“Oh! Are we doing the Question-and-Answer game like last time? That was fun.”

“Time goes by so fast. This should be two hours long.”

Youth: “Are you doing this again next year?”
Facilitator: “I hope I’ll get to work with B.U.M.P. again. Will you come back?”
Youth: “Yeah, for sure.”
Facilitator: “Good. But next time, I want you to submit more than one piece for the zine.”
Youth: “Yeah, next time I’m going to give you everything, my whole notebook.”
