ABOUT THIS SERIES: Founded in 2007, Food Brings Hope provides afterschool programs in 27 schools in Volusia County and two in Flagler County. The programs provide at-risk students opportunities to improve grades, have fun, and receive nourishing food. Throughout the holidays, The News Journal is highlighting the program by publishing the stories of some of its young participants. For more information, visit foodbringshope.org.
My name is Audrey VanPatten. I am 8 years old and am a third-grade student at Enterprise Elementary School. I have been in the KidsZone program for one year. My favorite school subject is math and I would like to go to veterinary school and become a veterinarian as I love to take care of animals.
I am an only child and look forward to playing my Nintendo Switch when I am off for winter break. If I could get anything on my wish list, I would like to get a hoverboard and a dog. If I could give someone else a special gift this year, I would bring cookies to my neighbors.
The thing I like best about KidsZone is the book we are reading together in tutoring — “The One and Only Ivan” — and snack time. KidsZone helps me learn better.
