Nahoum

Birthday: May 15
Grade: Secondary 1 (High School)

Nahoum is incredibly bright and responsible. Like many of the children at the Mission, his favorite subject is science; he especially loves to learn about geography, plants, and the solar system. Nahoum plays the drums and guitar—maybe one day the virtuoso will pick up the violin, his favorite instrument. If you’re considering a gift for him, give him a biography, as he enjoys reading about the exploits of greats like J.R.R. Tolkien and the Brothers Grimm. Though a picky eater himself, Nahoum is the Mission’s chef. Share some rice and beans with him—his favorite meal—or celebrate Independence Day in January—his favorite holiday—with a special meal courtesy of Nahoum: pumpkin soup with dumplings and carrots. He also likes to care for others by tutoring his classmates and helping the staff with their Creole and English. Nahoum considers Mr. Mitch his role model because helps people in need and “teaches us good manners and lessons on appreciation.”
