June Young Scholars Spotlight
My name is Amanuel Gebremeskel, and I'm really glad to be part of the Young Scholar program at Glasgow Middle School! I was born in Ethiopia, and my favorite memory of my time in Ethiopia was spending time with my family. When I am outside school, I like to play basketball and tennis, as well as coding. I'm planning to do track and field, tennis, and/or tennis in high school. I like all my classes, but mainly the stem-related classes. When I finish high school, I want to go to a University that has a very good medical program like Johns Hopkins University. My dream is to be in a medicine-related career, like a cardiothoracic surgeon.
