Zavier Menears

Hi my name is Zavier Menears and I am 15 years of age. I am a freshman that attends at Carnahan High school. I recently moved from Green Bay Wisconsin to St.Louis and now I’m in the Sweet Potato Project. I play two sports-Basketball, and Baseball but I’m mostly good at basketball. I’m going to play for Carnahan High school. I also like to play video games such as 2k13, Madden NFL, UFC, Fight Night Round 4 and more. I want to be a pro basketball for the Miami Heat, but if that doesn’t work out then I will go for being a pro baseball player. If that plan fails I will be an electrical engineer, because my older brother is and he seems to make a lot of money. He has a nice car, nice family, and a nice House. Lastly, hopefully I can follow my dreams and take notes from the Sweet Potato Project and let it lead me to the right direction in life.


I really enjoyed Mrs.Bolanlye because she is a really inspiring teacher and she talked about inspiring things, such as conflict and resolution that really helped me understand how to avoid conflicts. Also, she talked about how not to add to the conflict. If you see it going on, you have to break it up or try to solve it without violence. Therefore, Mrs.B was saying how there’s always a conflict to a situation but you have to know how to deal with it. Therefore, she said, there’s a resolution and you can solve it right without adding to the situation. Also, I really enjoyed Mrs.B’s African dance. It was a positive dance because it was about right’s of passage and celebrating reaching man and womanhood.
