   My hero is a woman named Sarah Ostrom. I live in an institution for girls called St. Anne's. I've lived here for three years.

Sarah Ostrom is my coach, but she's not the type of coach that teaches sports or stuff like that. I have a problem with hurting myself. Anytime I need to talk, Sarah is there. Every day that she works, she always puts a smile on my face, even if I am crying.

I had a very bad childhood. I've learned things that kids my age shouldn't know. My coach will answer any questions I ask, no matter what. They could be about sex, drugs or anythinglike that.

She never puts me down. She makes me happy when I am depressed. I've never met anyone like her. She is the best person I've ever met in my entire life. She means so much to me. Q
