Without hesitancy, I nominate JaKobie Antuwan English, age 11, for the youth of the week. Despite the significant impact COVID-19 has on our families, particularly youth, this young man continues to strive for personal and academic excellence.
He is a sixth grader that attends Alpha Academy, where he is a member of the Honor Society and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program. He has a 3.9 GPA.
Because of his strong intrapersonal skills and ability to convey information effectively, he is often selected by his teacher to assist with online projects.
During his free time, he loves to play the Piano and Roblox. His favorite subject is math. He loves to travel.
After high school, he plans to attend UCLA to study Accounting with a minor in Business Management.
