It’s an experience Asheley wanted to hold onto forever.
And so, the 13-year-old snapped photos as she and her friends excitedly explored Devonshire Mall, trying on new clothes in anticipation of the first day of high school.
“It was the best day,” Asheley said, who will be going into Grade 9 at Assumption College Catholic High School in September.
“I took lots of pictures so I can remember this moment and look back and say, ‘remember when I went shopping?’”
Asheley was among a group of 50 students who are part of the United Way’s On Track to Success Program.
