Career Launch

When I grow up I want to be an engineer. If I do not succeed my dream I would like to be a lawyer. On my way to the top I would like to be a staff (counselor) at my neighborhood boys and girls club (of Pawtucket). In this way I need to finish my years in high school so I can go to a good college to follow my dreams.
