“Quiet but extremely thoughtful. Ca’mar can be considered “reserved” or “to himself” but beyond that is a kid with a creative sense that needs to be ignited. He is an honor roll student at Mountain Vista Middle School and has been a part of Hillside Connection’s program since our inception.
No matter the circumstance, Ca’Mar plays his role in sports for the betterment of the group. Hillside Connection is currently in the process of exposing youth to a multitude of “pathways to opportunity”. He is talented in arts and crafts, and possesses the ability to build things effortlessly. Savvy with technology if nurtured/guided in the right direction.

Interview By My Black Colorado
What school do you attend and what year are you in?
The school that I go to is Mountain Vista Community School and I am in sixth grade.
What do you think others would say that they like the most about you? explain why.
I think that people would say that I’m a fast learner because that’s what my teachers and family say. I also understand things quickly.
When you are not in a class, what are the things you enjoy being involved with? explain why.
When I’m not in school some things that I enjoy doing is cooking, drawing, and also building models out of my legos.
What is the best advice someone has given you recently?
Some advice that I was given is to be a leader, not a follower. My mom gave me that advice and it applies to my everyday life because being a leader will keep me on the path to success
What is one thing you want to get better at? explain why.
One thing that I would like to get better at is perfecting my craft in all things I like to do. I enjoy drawing and cooking. I would like to get better at those particular things so that when I grow up I can design my own shoe. I would also choose to design for major companies. I like cooking too so that when I grow up I can be a chef and cook for people.
What do you think is one piece of advice that you think adults need to hear, to help them connect with the younger generation better?
Some advice that I think parents need to hear is that they should take responsibility for their kids’ actions. Some parents would blame things on their kids for something that the kid did, when it is partially their fault for not making sure that they didn’t do what they did. To take responsibility for their kids’ actions means to make sure that they’re on the right track.
What accomplishments or awards are you most proud of? explain why?
One of my accomplishments I’m most proud of is my first place trophy for the gold crown because I practiced and played hard to be able to be part of the team.
What impact have you made in the community that you are most proud of? explain why?
An impact that I have made in this community that I’m most proud of is helping my Uncle’s community get where it is today, with helping at the Trunk or Treat and helping with the Turkey and coat drive giving back to the community.
What do you think you want to do for a career. Explain why?
Something that I would want to do for a career is make it to the NBA because that’s always been my goal. If the NBA does not work out I would love to be a shoe designer.
What role have your parents played in helping you excel in life?
A role that my parents played to help me in my life is by always giving me the support and help that I need to survive.
