Alumni Stories: “Where Are They Now?”

A teenage Yee pictured at AFH.

“Everybody was so welcoming, and it felt like a second home. I always wanted to [go to the studio] right after school and learn new things. That was my first job, so I was like, ‘Wow! Is this how every job will be?’”

One of Yee’s works from the Photography Studio at AFH.

“That’s when I was like, yeah, this is my studio. I love this. This is the best studio of all the studios!”

“That’s what I learned from AFH — leadership skills, organization, and work ethics in general.”

“AFH is so great with giving back to the community and giving teens a place to be safe after school instead of being in the streets.”

“Without AFH, I wouldn’t be who I am. I wouldn’t have come as far as I have.”
