Since joining Step Up, my confidence and behavior have improved and I feel like I am more attentive in school. I really like Step Up because we spend a lot of time learning to speak, read and write English through fun activities and not just class exercises.  Some of my favorite things to do at Step Up are reading short stories and writing in my journal [“secret book”] because I can be creative and express myself however I want.

I think I am creative because I can write my own songs. I also believe I am confident because I always sing in front of many people. If I can be a singer when I grow up that would be great because I enjoy music a great deal.

I always tell people that Step Up is a good place because it helps kids to do well in school.
