Day 27: 1AB Journaling

The TLC Daily Blog had the pleasure to speak with Kaley, a Senior II. We sat down with Kaley–once under the Climbers’ Team Tree, and then later on the steps of Mahony Manor–to talk about why journaling has become such a necessary tradition for the girls of 1AB.

Sure, she’s recounting her days’ highlights, but instead of recording them in a standard written journal, she’s composing them into letters, to which she then mails to her home address everyday! So why would she do this?
