Why I’m taking this class: I love to be able to create things that can be used and love to learn about tools, etc.

What I like about this class: I like that everything I’m being taught is going to help me when I get older – for anything, really.

What the community should know: I’d like that community to know if you don’t understand some of the things that are being taught, not to worry because if you ask for help, it will be explained to you in a way so you will understand it.

 My future dream: My dream is to build my own house and be able to create and build anything that can help others, like building houses for the homeless.
