Meet Esmeralda, Youth of the Year at our San Marcos Elementary School Site

"The Club has impacted my life by helping me become the confident person I am today...I am lucky to call this great place my second home."

How long have you been coming to the Club?
I've been coming to the Club for four years now, since I started in 2nd grade.

What are your favorite specialty clubs?
Being a part of Theater and Dance Club helped me step out of my comfort zone and explore my creative side. This year, I am happy to say that I was nominated as my site's Torch Club president. Being able to participate in Torch Club has taught me how to combine skills I had, as well as develop new ones such as communication, public speaking, and leadership.

My favorite specialty club is Soccer Club. I like it because I always learn new techniques, skills, and warm-ups before a game. It has not only taught me the importance of working on a team, but also putting my best effort forward. I also enjoy getting medals at showcase at the end of the year. Last thing, I learned about Ballon d'Or, which is the award for the best player in the world!

Why do you like coming to the Club?
I love coming to the Club because it's fun! There are plenty of activities to do, as well as [specialty] clubs. They also offer homework help, which is great because then I don't have to do it at home. What I like most is that the staff play with us!

Who's your favorite staff?
My favorite staff at the Club is Mr. Roger. He is my favorite because he always tells me to never give up and always encourages me to do my best. Any time I feel down, he always knows how to make me feel better.
