My name is Christopher Proctor. I am 10 years old and am a fifth-grade student at Sunrise Elementary in Deltona. I have been in the FBHonors program for two years. My favorite subject is math. I want to go to college, but am not sure what I want to be after college because I want to keep my options open.
I have one brother, Xavier, and two sisters, Aliyah and Alysia. We are excited to open presents on Christmas. If I could get one thing on my wish list, it would be a PS5. If I could give others a gift during the holidays it would be to give donations of food to people who need it just like Food Brings Hope does each week.
My favorite field trip with Food Brings Hope last year was the Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Women's and Men's basketball games. I learn a lot in FBHonors and it helps me to be more creative because I try new things. My favorite part of FBH is the field trips because I get to explore places I haven't been to before and might not be able to see with my parents.
