to whom it may concern... my name is Artamese Prewitt an i have a passion to be working with teens. I feel that i will be a great candidate working with teenagers showing them positive out looks on life . Im a great person with a positive attitude. I grew up in the south side of Chicago where i still reside an nothing hurts me more than teens needing positive role models I see it every day. I feel that my aspects of life can help teens steer in the right direction helping them to avoid the place's where I've been an seeing things that i have seen. I understand that a child only knows what they have seen but a child can always learn about what they need to know to be a better person.I honestly will like to take time out my day to provide some teens with knowledgeable thoughts,a positive attitude an leader ship skills.
