I usually like to help a lot of people
I came to Virginia like one week after the hurricanes in Puerto Rico. I was there for both of them. When there was no water and electricity, we didn’t go to school. My mom sent me here to be with my dad so I could be in a school with lights and water so I could learn easier because I’m a sixth-grader and I’m learning harder stuff than my sister. She’s almost in first grade and she is in Puerto Rico with my mom.
I’ve been in Virginia for five months right now. I’ve tried my best to keep my grades up and try and learn everything here at Great Neck.
When I’m not at school I usually go play with my friends outside. Ever since the pool opened we’ve gone a few times. Sometimes I just stay at home and play with my dad.
Is there anything else you would want people to know about you?
I usually like to help a lot of people. For example, my great grandmother, when she had trouble with the stairs I helped her. She’s not here anymore but we had a good time. We used to play a lot of board games; we played cards and all that. She taught me how to play solitaire.
Do you know how long you’ll be here in Virginia Beach?
After Father’s Day, my mom is going to come and pick me up and we’re going to go visit a friend of ours only a few hours away from here. Then we’ll go back to Puerto Rico.
