My name is Emily Wells. I attend Enterprise Elementary and am in fourth grade. I am 9 years old. This is my second year in the KidsZone program. My favorite school subject is writing because I love being creative and using my imagination. I have a twin brother, Ethan, who also attends Enterprise Elementary. It is my wish to go to Universal Studios with my family during the winter break. For Christmas this year, I am hoping to get a cat and a hoverboard as my presents. If I could give someone else a special gift this year, I would give money to people who need it.
Snack time and play time before tutoring are my favorite things about Kids-Zone. I also have made new friends in the program and love hanging out with them on KidsZone days. I have really improved my math skills while participating in KidsZone. Thank you Food Brings Hope!
