Hi, my name is Kela, and I’m in 11th grade at Somerville High School. I’m originally from Port-au-Prince in Haiti.
For my 18th birthday in February, my mentor Afton and my tutor Caitlin celebrated with me and a friend by going out to eat together. We went to Redbones in Davis Square and had a lot of fun. Afton chose the place to eat because I didn’t know where to go, but I really liked the BBQ sandwich. It was the best birthday ever! When I go out with them, we have a lot of fun together.
I like my mentor and tutor because they are awesome and really help when I don’t know what to do. Afton has really helped me write my resume to help apply for jobs and college. When I was struggling with my science fair project and I didn’t know what to write about or where to start, Caitlin gave me a brilliant idea what to write about, and she helped me write the project. Enroot is really a great program because I’m able to have a tutor, and talk to someone about college.
