My name is Jacob Webster, and I am in fourth grade in FBHonors. Food Brings Hope means a lot to me. It has helped me with everything to become a better person and a better student at Westside.
When someone asks me my favorite subject in school, I always say that I like all of them. Really, I like math the best because I like to do division problems. FBHonors has helped me a lot in science because after school we also do STEM projects and experiments.
Since this is my first year, we have not had any field trips with Food Brings Hope, but I'm hoping we will be able to go on the field trip at the end of the year to the Pigeon Key Marine Biology Center. It will be fun to learn about the ocean and to learn to snorkel and see a variety of marine life.
For Christmas, my wish would be to get a virtual reality headset. I think that would be cool! And, my biggest wish would be to give money to all the poor people.
I know it's going to be very hard to do, but when I grow up I want to be a Supreme Court judge.
