This week I had the chance to talk with Mrs. Shannon from Jesse's House Girls Shelter. She told me how girls get to the shelter. She went into details about what DFACS was. They have a really hard job and there are so many parts to it. She told me the house is very structured. I think they have to be structured because if it wasn't, it wouldn't help the kids very much. I think Jesse's House is a wonderful place for the girls that need them. She inspired me to use that information to help the girls have a happier life. I think by giving them science fun it gives them a moment where they can focus on having fun and not on their worries. I think when I'm older I can make a bigger difference someday. I don't know what that is yet, but I know that someday it will come to me and I will be able to help those girls in a BIG way.
My name is Angelica Krubeck and I am 12 years old. I love science. It's one of my favorite things to do. When I was 8, one of my friends opened up to me. She shared how she grew up in a shelter and how hard every day was. After that conversation, I decided I wanted to help kids like her in some way. Science I love and kids I love, so put them together and it just makes sense. I knew that some kids out there don't get the chance to be creative with science, like how I do. I strongly believe that no kid should be without the education and enjoyment of science! Not only does it help them get away from their worries for a little while, but it also provides education to them. I hope to inspire kids to do great things, to succeed in science, and to develop a love for science despite the challenges they are facing in their life.
