Conversation with Jake after a successful international flight together where Keys 4 Autism worked with autistic students, families, and school staff in Belize:
Jake: What was different this flight from one year ago? (See previous post from last October)
Kaegan: I think I am different. I have had the worst case flight and survived. I realize I am stronger for it.
Jake: How do you feel you've grown over this past year?
Kaegan: I am facing my fears and overcoming them. I want to take a moment to bask in the fact that I have flown successfully eight times since my last post.
Jake: What have you practiced this past year to bring you to this point?
Kaegan: Visualization has been key. I see myself succeeding and try to feel the accomplishment within my bones. It really helps. Do you ever do that?
Jake: Sometimes, but not always as a pro-active tool, so I think I will try to do that more consciously.
