Aarhus, Denmark February 2017

What a journey these little birds have been on, since the first day where fear, pain and self-hate were written all over their faces, and then on the last day they were shining brighter than the sun.

It was with great pleasure, that 14 new students finished their first course in Aarhus, in the Scandinavian region of the McGuire Programme. What a journey these little birds have been on, since the first day where fear, pain and self-hate were written all over their faces, and then on the last day they were shining brighter than the sun. Not even the thick fog here in Aarhus could cloud the positive attitude and pride, which the new students spoke with in the center of the city. Now they have been gently pushed out of the nest, to try out their wings and fly on their own!

Boundaries have been broken down and new dreams have arisen and are now in arms reach. With the combination of tears, laughter and excellent dedication, we now have 14 strong and amazing new students in our McGuire family, and we are grateful for the support from parents and social workers, coaches and old grads attending the course. We wish them all the best!
