Q. How has the Club helped you in other aspects of your life—school, at home, sports?
A. The Club has helped me to be confident in myself and trust people. It has helped me have an open and honest relationship with my parents and communicate a lot. The Club has taught me to not give up on my dreams and my education. To give it all I have.
Q. What advice would you give to younger kids about succeeding in life?
A. Never give up. Sometimes it gets hard, but don’t give up on yourself or your dreams. Don’t be afraid to dream big.
Q. What are your future plans?
A. Ever since I was little, I have always wanted to become a doctor and help deliver babies. I want to study hard so I can help others, save lives, and bring new babies into this world.
Q. Anything else you would like to share?
A. Even though parents are separated, life is not over. When things get tough, just push through. There are better things coming if you keep trying. Never give up on your goals
