What Teens Are Saying About the Teen Track
Mt Hermon was by far one of the best experiences of my life. I learned so much about writing and just as much about life. I can’t wait to go again next year! –Aaron B.
I believe that Mt. Hermon was a very enriching part of my life and I have gained knowledge and memories that I will hold with me for the rest of my life. I learned so much about story development and how the Christian writing market differs from that of the secular market. My most lasting memory will probably be just chilling with all my classmates in our room after a long days work and having a blast. –Nolan K.
At Mt. Hermon I really enjoyed hanging out with everyone and getting to know them. I also loved all the classes I went to; I learned a lot. And meeting with Ethel Herr was a great experience and she encouraged me to continue with my story. – Heather M.
Mt. Hermon really showed me all the little details in writing. One of the things I learned was how to show characters personalities without telling but by showing their reactions. My favorite part of Mt. Hermon was hanging out with my homies in the rooms and getting to know each of them better. –Tevin J.
Before going to Mount Hermon, I was apprehensive and wasn’t sure if it would really help my writing skills, let alone be fun. But, while there, I met many amazing people who aided me on my quest to become an amazing writer, and also bonded with my fellow journalism students (and Dakota). It was a time I will never forget, and will cherish always. –Angelina M.
My experience at Mount Hermon was simply amazing. Everything about it was fantastic. I did not really want to go at first, but now I am so glad I did. I learned so much about writing and I am excited to apply it in college! I am so glad that we had the chance to have this experience and I definitely want to go back. –Jina D.
