"I like being here at the Centre because now I know several things about locksmith such as welding, cutting iron with a grinder, and I also know the name of the tools we use.
At school I behave myself and I usually have good grades. Next year I would like to be in the 9th grade and maintain my good grades. In the future I would like to be a judge.
The Centre has helped me to be the person I am today.
I know that locksmith will not be my future but it will help me to be a different, successful and better man. I appreciate brother Joaquim’s skills and I like to hear him saying he will be a judge. I want to be like him; he is a very good and exemplar friend.
Thank you very much CPRE and A Little Gesture.
