Angel Mendoza from Maria Montessori Academy

Angel Mendoza is known for his kindness and positive attitude.  He always has a smile on his face.  Angel is also very ambitious and wants to open his own Mexican restaurant someday.  We asked him why and he said, “I watch my grandma make food for our family and it always brings a smile to my family’s faces; I want to make people happy like that too.”  Angel is an avid reader and even reads during his free time.  He said, “It brings me to all kinds of interesting places.”  When asked if he could change one thing in this world and what that would it be, he replied, “I would help children who immigrate to the United States get treated fairly in the judicial system.” This goal shows Angel’s caring and thoughtful approach to his life and his awareness to reach out as a global citizen; he will go far!
