Elijah's Story

My passion is Football.

One day I was bored, so I started browsing Youtube. While I was browsing Youtube I saw one video about NFL training. I decided I wanted to be an NFL player. I know that this camp will help me train physically as well as help me with discipline and leadership.

A Note from Ms. Acharya, Elijah's Teacher

Elijah is a hard working and focused student. He is always thinking about ways in which he can enrich his educational experience despite limited opportunities. Currently, he has applied for several scholarships during the summer to help him gain a better understanding of a career in law enforcement. Elijah is extremely resourceful and understands that access and opportunity will be what contributes to his success in and beyond school.

I'm ready

Yesterday on Wednesday, my grade and a bunch of others just had our fitness test. I ran the mile in 6 minutes and 14 seconds, which is honestly the fastest I've ever ran the mile. I do need to work on my upper body strength because I was only able to do 32 push-ups and 36 sit-ups. I know I'm mentally ready and now I know I'm physically ready. I hope I can run the mile under 6 minutes.
