b'14springtideresearch.orgIn a fast-moving city like New York, I am always on the move and busy with school or work. While it can be overwhelming sometimes, one thing that does not change is the sense of warmth and belonging in my community. For instance, working on the LessLonely Project at the 92 Street Y Belfer Center for Innovation and Social Impact, I feel a strong sense of belonging because I am given credit for what I create and help lead. My friends at school always make sure that I am doing well and provide support whenever I need help. These experiences give me a sense of belonging by making me feel important because I am named and noticed.Queena, 17'
