"I'm just a kid! And I really enjoy being a kid. It seems like everyone wants to grow up so fast. Not me – I want to learn all I can now so that being an adult is just as exciting as being a child."

"No matter what age you are, I think it’s important that you keep learning and pay attention to things. Paying attention and being focused is important to me. My mom is blind, and I am a guide for her. I help her see, so it's very important that I don’t get distracted and stay focused. I think being there for her is helping me for my future."
