Hello, my name is Julián,
And this is my mother standing beside me. I am ten years old. I have two brothers and two sisters and am in the fourth grade. My mother is a single parent so it is difficult for her to buy all we need for school. She is really happy for me to be part of the
Green Light Education Assistance Program because it provides my uniforms, shoes and school supplies.
I am glad they gave me a knapsack because it makes it easier for me to carry my books to school, which is a 30 to 40-minute walk away. Not having a left arm makes life more difficult for me, but I manage. I had an accident when I was four years old.
I know I have to get good marks to stay in the program so I study hard. My mother, brothers and sisters help me when I need it although my mother doesn’t have much time because she has to work so many jobs.
Thank you, Green Light, for helping me!
