As a sophomore in high school, Sebastian has already faced his share of adversity. When his grandfather became ill last year, Sebastian’s attendance at school was affected until, eventually, he stopped coming to school altogether in order to be a caregiver.

Getting behind in school could have discouraged Sebastian enough for him to give up completely, but he didn’t. Fortunately, he returned to school this semester and has earned A’s and B’s in all of his classes. Thanks to the support and encouragement from his Career Specialist Marcus Porter, Sebastian has been involved with his JAG-K Career Association and has aspirations to play basketball and baseball this year. He is a great example of how important it is to keep going in spite of adversity and setbacks, and we are very proud of his hard work and resiliency!
