Friends Of ASCCA: Lizzie’s Friendships Made at ASCCA

The friendships I’ve made at Camp are pretty special to me. Believe it or not, the friends that I’ve made at ASCCA are the truest friends I’ve ever had. I love it how I can be 100% myself in front of all of those friends and not feel like I’m being judged. They’ll be there for me whenever I need a shoulder to lean on, laugh with, or just talk to about anything and everything with. Even though I don’t get to see them on a daily basis, I know that I can always count on my friends to be there for me. If I message them, they reply within minutes or if you’re my friend Clay he’ll reply a few hours later. He truly means well. He just stinks at replying, and that’s perfectly okay.

I talk to my Camp friends daily. I text some and Snapchat some. We always keep in touch with each other.

It’s nice to know that I have people that “get it”, can understand, and will accept me for who I am regardless if I have a disability. Making friends like true friends hasn’t been the easiest for me but having the Camp friends that I have makes my life much brighter and happier.

Each and every one of my Camp friends mean a lot to me. I don’t think they know how much of an impact they’ve had on my life. They each bring something special to my life and I value the friendships I have with them so much.

I also enjoy having friends that live all over. I have one friend that lives in Auburn, one that lives in Georgia, and one that lives an hour away from me. I even met a guy from Spain last summer. I don’t talk to the guy from Spain now, but it was cool meeting him! Anyways, I really like having these friendships with people that live in different places because I can always ask them about the place they live and compare it to where I live. It’s very cool that the majority of my friend group is very diverse. Another thing that’s cool about that is I might not see these friends all the time, but when I do see them it’s that much sweeter.

People of Camp, I suggest you stay close to your ASCCA friends because they are one of a kind, truly.

Camp friendships are the best friendships.
