new sponsored student: oscar

Oscar is 15 years old. A smart, dedicated and hard working student, he was ranked 1st in his class in Primary 7. He has now begun secondary school with a Change the Truth scholarship courtesy of a generous supporter from Chicago. Oscar came to SMK in 2008 when he was in Primary 2. He arrived with his father and four brothers. His father was a security guard at SMK for short time before getting a job elsewhere (once his father left, he never returned). Oscar’s mother died of cancer. This super sweet and talented young man is a well-rounded artist who enjoys painting, drawing and sculpting. In addition, he likes playing cards and playing the trumpet and saxophone in SMK’s Marching Band. He is a proud member of the "Five Stars" saxophone group. Oscar says he wants to be an artist when he grows up. He's already a truly incredible one. Check out his recent work on the CTT Annual Fundraiser website.
