Our student spotlight this month is a senior at Manual Arts High School. Cristo is in his 2nd year in the JKL program and is looking to get as much out of the program as he can before crossing the stage in June!
This year, Cristo took on the challenge to start running with the JKL program. He has already participated in both a 5k and 10k race and is eager to cap his senior year off with one additional race.
Since joining the JKL program, Cristo has seen his weight drop, experienced less stressful days, and has developed a love for community service. “Being able to give back and seeing people experience joy puts a smile on my face,” says Cristo.
The positive energy and family environment of the JKL program is one of the key elements that keeps Cristo coming back. After graduation, Cristo would like to volunteer for the JKL program and be an ambassador for change while attending college. He has aspirations to follow in the footsteps of his older brother by pursing a degree in mechanical engineering.
