On July 1st, Kiersten Kral came in to talk to the whole 2019 conference about her life story. Kiersten suffered a traumatic brain injury while running track in high school several years ago. It took a lot of strength to come to the conference to speak in front of all 150 conferees and staff but Kiersten is always ready to share her wisdom and story with her RYLA family.
On the 2nd day of Olympics, there was a variety of games both inside and outside that tested our mental and physical strengths. It was fun! Games like Seagulls and Crows, Stack-Attack/ and 3 Ball Soccer kept us on our toes and challenged our groups against others.
Servant Leadership Speaker: Lynn Manzione
On Day 3 at RYLA, conferees gathered to not only watch an inspiring documentary about a humanitarian, but also to engage in a fun game show! Lynn Manzione shared her life story and how she turned her life around by deciding to, advice from her friend Dr. MacGuffie.
A fun and entertaining re-cap on the days behind us, the RYLA Knightly News featured interviews, sponsor videos, weather and sports updates.
I'll give you three words: SO MUCH TALENT!! The conferees from every group at RYLA got really into the talent show and showed off their amazing talents. Some of said talents involved dancing, singing, comedy, improv, magic, etc. Everyone had a great time watching and performing.
"Apologies for the Talent Show Part 2 video. There seems to have been an issue when uploading and we are working to fix this. Thank You!"
I think everyone at RYLA can agree that the dance was an unforgettable experience. The gym was glimmering with rainbow lights, it was so cool! Classic songs and new songs played, everyone was dancing their hearts out.
Media blog Day 3- July 1st, 2019 Hey guys! We made a lot of progress today. We completed the Get in Touch page where we list every conferees social media accounts so that we can all keep in touch after we complete our five days here. This is a great way to keep our friendship bonds active after RYLA. Lulu updated our Day 2 and 3. Sanjay and I have been fixing up the appearance and working on finding accurate background information. Peter worked on editing pages. Christina and Alaiysia worked on the group page and uploaded group pictures. Taylor and Salma took pictures and uploaded them to our website. Rachel and Samantha edited our square dancing videos so we would look a little more normal at least. Finally, Saadiq edited our day 4 page.
