PBS Character: “I would choose Bob the Builder. First, because of his optimism and his enthusiastic phrase “can we fix it”, “yes we can”. I truly believe that there is no problem too big or small that my team and I cannot conquer. Second, because he utilizes the right tools for the right projects knowing each tool’s strengths and weaknesses. Lastly, because Bob himself is dedicated and hardworking. I am dedicated to leading my team to empower the children and families in our community.” Mr. Jamal Berry
