We Are Tower.
Something that is really hard is math—but I really like math. It's my favorite thing to do in school.
Recitation Day will take a lot of courage because we will be speaking in front of the whole school which will be a little nerve racking, but I'm very excited.
When I grow up I want to be a teacher and the President.
My favorite after-school activity at Tower was playing soccer. I loved this because I felt like a leader and I helped people when they needed it.
I have a lot of imagination so I'd be a pretty good filmmaker. I'm really brave, so I think I probably could become president, and I am doing ballet class and I really like it, so I thought it would be fun to be a ballerina.
Nelly, on future opportunities
When you're learning something new, that's hard, [...] if you have the right mindset, then you can say, ‘I can do this. It'll be good—and if it's not good, it's ok. You can do it again and make it better.’
Lucy, speaking about embracing challenge
We both want to be professional soccer players, but if that doesn't work out for me, I'd like to go to engineering school and be an engineer.
Julius, on his brother's and his shared dream, as well as a good alternative plan
When I was getting up on the top of the monkey bars, I didn't really know how to get down. [...] I had to scoot forward and it made me really scared. I just tried to do it from the side—and it felt really good when I did it.
