My name is Coumba Bass. I am in the 11 grade at StreetSquash. I am also a dancer and from Senegal. I go to a High School call High School for Health Profession and Human Services. I have been in StreetSquash for 3 years now and love it. I love this program because the people are my family. StreetSquash is always there for me. They help me and prepare me for college. I also play my favorite sport Squash there. It's a very fun and helpful program. I'm going to graduate in one more year and am interested in many colleges. I'm interested in going to Connecticut College, Skidmore, Brook and many more.
StreetSquash is going to a trip to Guatemala this summer. We will be staying and helping in a small community call Chajul. Their language call Ixil. I want to attend this trip because it seemed fun and I get to meet new people. We also get to help people still rebuilding and suffering from their 36 years war. I also want to know their culture and how they live. I along with 9 other students from StreetSquash will be helping kids to attend school. I have now also been trying to take school more seriously and do my best. Most kids in Guatemala can't go to school because they need to stay home and help their families. Another thing I have learned is that they can't go because they don't have the money for school, and I hope that I will also be able to fundraise and work in the future to help more kids attend school. As part of the trip I am hoping to learn even more about the community and prepare to live and work in the community when we visit this summer.
