From Mikeia Green:
"... every time I'm wearing my pin, I feel like I can really do anything I put my mind to. Sometimes when I'm taking a test in my AP class, I just look at my pin and I don't feel nervous anymore. It's almost like they have a power to them even though I know it's all about believing in myself and the pins are a great reminder to help me remember that."
From Julio Lopez:
"I would like to thank you for the pins! They really motivate me to do my work and make me want to learn more about math. Every time I look at the pin it puts a smile on my face and brightens up my day and motivates me to do my best..."
From Denise Erives:
"I am a senior at Tolleson Union High School. TUHS has a rule that we cannot wear shirts with writing on them. Some times I wake up and feel like I want to wear a shirt that says "Yes I Can" or something else, but I can't so instead I wear a button. People seem to notice buttons more than anything written on things and then ask "you can do what?" and you answer feeling good about yourself "yes I can do anything!"
From Humberto Quinonez:
"... your pins really changed my life. When I feel I cannot move on, I just look at the YES I CAN and it motivates me to work harder."
From Quentin Huntley Jr:
"I really like the pins. I have like 15 all over my book bag. Everyone always asks me why I have them, and I tell them that I can achieve what I want. Yes I can do it. I can do what I want to do. I look at my book bag and tell myself I can."

YES I CAN Curriculum for School
The YES I CAN Project is currently working on a YES I CAN curriculum for schools that will help students build confidence and self-esteem, teach them how to set goals and achieve them, and be proud of all their accomplishments.
Help Make the YES I CAN Project a Success!!
If our mission to help children build confidence and self-esteem resonates with you, you can help by:
* spreading the word about the YES I CAN Project by becoming an Ambassador of YES I CAN.
* passing out YES I CAN buttons to children you come in contact with.
* having us send YES I CAN buttons and stickers to the school(s) you attended as a child. We will include a certificate with your name on it or we can send them anonymously.
We can send 500 YES I CAN small buttons and 500 YES I CAN stickers to a school for only $99.00. That's just twenty cents per child.
