My name is K'on Snead. I am 13 years old and am an eighth-grade student at Campbell Middle School. I have been in TeenZone for two years and have made many friends in the program. My favorite subject is band because the band teacher helps me with all of my other subjects and he is the most supportive teacher I have this year.
My siblings, Kayshawn, Kami, Ly'asia, Maleah and I will celebrate Christmas by cooking, watching movies, playing games, going to church, and celebrating my brother's birthday on Dec. 27. If I could get anything on my wish list, it would be the Xbox.
I like being in the TeenZone program because it helps me socialize with other people and teaches me how to control my energy. It helps me control my urge to horseplay and stay focused.
The people at Food Brings Hope really care about us. They spend their time and money giving kids food and helping us to learn more in school.
