Kristina Druce - How has The Feast Impacted you?

Over the last two years, I’ve had the privilege of working for The Feast Youth Project. My experience has been one of joy and great interest. I have been involved in various youth encounters where we bring together young people from all different backgrounds to enjoy fun activities, food, and most importantly dialogue together.

Everything I have learned through the feast so far has impacted all the other areas of my life because it has made me so much more aware of how important it is to give people the space to say what they want to say for themselves, to not assume what they mean but to try my best to really listen and get a feel for what they truly mean. I have also learned that the problems facing young people today are very different from previous generations. Now more than ever there is great importance to enable the bringing together of young people from different cultures and backgrounds and to encourage them to talk openly about themselves, their faith and their opinions.
