Matthew R.

Matthew R.

I am Matthew. My goal is to finish college because I want to have a great life. I am hoping to study hard for the SAT and get a good score so that I can get into a good school. In school, my favorite subject is history because I like to learn about the past and I really enjoy reading about other cultures. I am a youth leader and have been working on a project surveying stores that sell tobacco products. I'm trying to get stores in my neighborhood to stop selling tabacco to minors.

Shevaun F.

I am 17 years old. I am really good with computers. I like working on them, taking them apart, and putting them back together. I have fixed some computers for my friends. I have taken a few programming classes and I want to learn more. At some point, I want to live in a warm climate, so I am looking at Arizona State University and Florida Institute of Technology.

I'm not sure what I want to do, but I want to be someone great so I need to do well on the SATs and get into a good college. I am a Youth Community Organizer in my community. I have been working on a project that surveys 1,000 high schools to see how people of different cultures are treated by other students and their teachers. We are also working on a project about students who get bullied.

George R.

My name is George and I am 18. I live with my mom and 3 brothers. I want to be an engineer. I am interested in knowing how machines work, so I think I want to study mechanical engineering. No one in my family has gone to college, and I hope to be the first. I would love to get into M.I.T. but I am also looking at Boston University and Cooper Union. I have never been to New York, but I think it is somewhere I would like to live after I finish school.
