OPAL Project: Me By Design

OPAL Project: #MeByDesign

Quote: Be bold enough to design your life #mebydesign

"#MeByDesign is all about you. By design. Right here is where you can find out about all of the great things teens are doing in your parish and everywhere else – from dancing to debating to dirtbiking – to express themselves and connect with others. And just as important, those things that we love to do are the same things that keep us focused on our dreams and away from alcohol, tobacco and drugs." From:
