Hi my name is Lewis Castrejon. I don't know how to surf but I am learning how to so I can raise money for the organization that changed my life.
Before Boys to men I was an angry isolative teenager. I kept all my anger bottled up inside of me and I took it out on other kids by bullying them or getting into fights at school. I never thought I could trust another man until I found boys to men. They gave me somewhere i could feel safe for once and let out all of the pain of being hurt by others that I kept inside of me for so many years.
Since being apart of boys to men my entire way of thinking has changed.
I am no longer that angry teenager who hurts other kids and mouths off all the time. I tolerate people better and treat them with the same kindness I know I want them to treat me with.
Boys to men has gave me much more than a place of safety they gave me a place of healing. When i go to the meetings i don't just see friends i see fathers, brothers and uncles i can trust.
My goal is to catch 40 waves and raise $5,000 for Boys to Men. That will be a huge challenge for me.
Thank you helping me,
