Berlane is a fourteen year old boy in the 7th grade who loves to study. He lives with his mother, father, four sisters and seven brothers. His father is a truck driver and his mother is a sales woman. When he’s not in school, Berlane loves to play soccer and spend the summer vacationing with his aunt in the country. In school he loves math and would love to become an engineer so that he can build roads for the village. He would also like to start a University in the village to provide more jobs and so that the people can become more educated. It is very difficult for Berlane to pay for school, so the possibility of a sponsorship is incredible for him to think about!
