JoNetta Muldrew

Hi, I’m JoNetta Muldrew, I’m 16 years old. I’m a junior and I attend Gateway STEM High School. I like to text, dance, step and cheer. I make A’s and B’s. I’m an Honor Roll student. I want to be a nurse or a school teacher. I pick the role of a nurse because I have a big passion for elderly and children. I took care of my Aunt from the time she moved with us until she passed away in 2009. I also take an interest in being a school teacher because the children need the extra boost to give them the encouragement to bring a better future. I just want to make the children feel loved and give them an education all in one.

Reflections:

Trayvon Martin Case
I’m very upset about this! The black on black crime, white on black, and police on black! It’s a disappointment on how many people are dying day to day all because of guns. I just wish this entire thing would END! Too many people are dying!

We had a guest speaker by the name of Mr. Kabir Muhammad and he was great. I loved his presentation, he stayed real and enthusiastic. His conversation kept me engaged. Not once did I get sidetracked. Everything he talked about was based on reality and made a lot of sense.

Reflections:

“I’m happy and grateful someone cares for us youth, keeping us off the streets giving us a better alternative to life. I’ve realized that I don’t have to steal or sell drugs to make my money. I can try planting different foods and selling that. Well before I heard of the Sweet Potato Project I was hanging out all night, sitting around adults, and engaged in a horrible life. When I joined I instantly felt welcomed and felt this would be a good start for me. This is one of the best programs I’ve been apart of! Thanks a lot.
