Above, Sylvia Abrego-Araiza poses with Your Life Calling host Jane Pauley. Abrego-Araiza is now working as a drug and alcohol youth counselor in McAllen, Texas, after going back to school for an associate's degree in social work.
"I had the opportunity to be youthful again. I had lost so much of that before."
