Hi my name is Amyah. I’m currently in middle school and I’m in the 7th grade, though supposed to be in the 8th. The reason I’m not is because is my birthday is behind the dead line. I live in Asheville, North Carolina with my mom. I like to draw and cheer. Something I would like to change in the world is to help the homeless and make sure everyone has a home and a place to live. I would love to help pick up trash in my neighborhood because it is a mess. People in my neighborhood throw the trash on the ground and most people don’t care about our environment. The reason I wanted to join Word on the Street is because I heard about it when I came up here to the Reed (Edington Center). (Our youth coordinator)Daniel told me about it and I decided to join it over the summer. This is my first year joining this program and so far it is amazing and it helps me express myself in art. The other reason I joined Word on the Street is because I wanted something to do after school instead of me being at home bored all the time with my siblings.
