From Camp Harbor View to Save the Harbor!

Hi! I'm Jordon Neil and I lived Jamaica for 13 years until I moved to the United States. When I got to the U.S. I lived in Miami but in Miami, it never really felt like my type of place.  I felt it didn't have many attractions or youth programs and I'm happy that Boston does!  The only advantage was the constant nice weather.  My aunt offered me a chance to move in with her in Boston, so I quickly jumped at the opportunity and moved here in 2015.

At first I was in METCO and attended Belmont High School but then transferred to Match Charter High School.  I have been at Match for the last two years and will be a Junior this coming fall. I go from class to class learning new information. My favorite class is Biology because there are so much fun and interesting thing that you can learner example Malaria is more common in hot continents.I too part in cooking club. I played soccer in my Freshman year of high School,  I was positioned at the right wing, soccer is my favorite sport because of all the action and the intensity that the sport requires.  Last summer I worked with Camp harbor View taking care of campers, making sure that they were in the right place at the right time, monitoring and lead activities such as icebreakers and little games such as Fish fishy cross my ocean and the West wind blows. I liked Camp Harbor view because the staff was always welcoming and they always tried their best to make sure that campers were happy. I became Save the Harbor because I felt like this was a more hands on program and I wanted to give back to the community of Boston. I really like working with Save the  Harbor because I work with kids and I'm thinking about becoming a Marine Biologist or something that has to do with the ocean and fishes. I would like to become a marine biologist because I find the habit, name  and habits of fishes and many species of the ocean very interesting. Many parts of the Ocean isn't explored as yet and that makes me very curious of what might be there.  I would more like to study and explore the Ocean.  Fun fact- The Megalodon the largest shark known to live.

I can't wait to have a blast this summer working at Save the Harbor!
