The Intro: Jazeel Mendes

Ola everyone, my name is Jazeel Mendes and this will be my second year working with Save the Harbor Save the Bay. I was born in Cape Verde, a set of ten islands of the west coast of Africa. I came to the U.S. when I was 11 and 6 years later here I am a 17 year old senior at the Madison Park. I'm currently studying the carpentry trade at school and I'm hoping to one day join the Union. I also play soccer for my school, were we have been City Champs for years straight and hoping to continue our wining ways next year. I love watching Soccer and Basketball, so it's not that hard to tell that I'm really loving the World Cup (Go Brazil). I also love watching Basketball and ever since I learned about the game I've been a Celtics fan and that will never change.

I'm really static to be working for Save the Harbor for a second year because last year was one the best summers of my life. Last summer I was to able to make new friends and I was also able to be part of the lives of the Children that came through our program. Last year I made many memories from having an ice cream fight at Mcdonough to fishing along side Bruce at the fishing tournament, because of Save the Harbor the list goes on and on and I know that this year we will have an amazing year to top what we did last year. This year I'm really hoping that when we have the fishing tournament the weather will be nice and I'll catch a stripped Bass. I know we are going to have a wonderful year I'm really excited to start working again.

I'm really grateful for the opportunity to be working for Save the Harbor and I just want to thank Bruce, Bridget and Patty for bringing me back for a second year. I will work really hard and pass down what I've learned to all the kids that will be joining us this year.

Thank you 

Everyone have a great summer...... Chao
