Our names are George & Jason. We saw your video on the PEARLS website. You seem like a cool kid to hang out with. We are sorry to hear about how you had to have your right half of your brain removed. But I’m glad that you are a part of life. If we didn’t know that you had brain surgery we would have never guessed. We guess you hear that a lot from a lot of people.
George: I’m mixed with African American and Caucasian and I’m 14 years old. I had surgery also on my head but not as severe as you. When I was 12, I was playing baseball. I was on first base trying to get an out and the sun got in my eyes. The ball missed the glove and hit my forehead. When I went to the hospital they said I needed surgery the next week to put a plate on my forehead. But is all good. I quit sports and want to be in the same career as my dad in mechanical engineering. What would you like your career to be?
Jason: I am Hispanic. I am 14 years old. My family is from El Salvador. I was born in Michigan. I have lived in Michigan all of my life. I am a very curious person and always trying and looking to find out more. I like exploring. I am loud and always laughing. I enjoy working with my dad in construction and building. I like to play soccer with my cousins and friends. I also like engineering. I like to get outside and do fun things hangout and just chill. What are your family traits?
Hope to hear from you soon
Jason & George
