Da’Maree is a very optimistic student in our Thursday Night Math program. When talking to her I could notice her kindness and her eagerness to learn. Since she started at FLOC this fall, she has shown a lot of improvement in her math skills and a lot of determination to continue progressing. When asked what she would like to learn next semester, she mentioned that she wants to “improve in the area of fractions.”

One of the things that Da’Maree likes the most about coming to FLOC is spending time with her tutor, Tim Woodsmall. Tim has been very helpful and supportive. “I like my tutor. He is the same as me, nice and fun, and helps me a lot. I’m better at math than I was before.”

Da’Maree’s favorite game she’s played at FLOC is Life because “it is similar to life and exciting to see where you can land on.” During her free time she loves to read and submerge herself into the wonderful world that the books can offer. Her favorite book is Grace After Midnight, a memoir written by Felicia “Snoop” Pearson. Da’Maree likes the book because it is a real story about a girl who managed to overcome the challenges that she faced while growing up and later in her life.

When asked about her career interests, Da’Maree said that she wants to be either a judge or a lawyer. We know that Da’Maree has a bright future ahead of her and that her self-motivation and enthusiasm will help her to be a successful professional.
