Hello my name is Isaiah Armstrong and I am a junior at Frederick Douglass Academy 2 High School. It has been 6 years since I’ve joined StreetSquash and they have provided me with a lot of opportunities to travel and experience new things. I have been to places like Rome, Denver, Boston, and Philadelphia for squash tournaments and camps. I also do a lot of community service, I enjoy having the opportunity to help others. Going to Guatemala is a great opportunity for me because I will be going to another country and learning about their community. For someone of my age, I am really grateful to be given this opportunity.
Me and other chosen StreetSquash students will be taking language classes, current event classes and have fundraisers to make this trip possible. We will travel to Chajul, Guatemala to help them recover and rebuild their village that got caught up in their Civil War that ended in 1996. By contributing to community service with StreetSquash, I have learned that other communities aren’t the same as the community I’m used to. While my community suffers from a lack of resources, I am learning that other communities suffer from even worse poverty, lack of food and water, war and other severe tragedies. Any donation for this community service trip will be appreciated!
To donate you can mail a check to StreetSquash at 40 West116th st, New York NY 10027 or go to crowdrise here and donate under “StreetSquash.” It would also be great to pass this on to anyone you know who might be willing to help us out! Thank you so much in advance! http://www.crowdrise.com/StreetSquashGuatemala/fundraiser
