“Three things” with Adriano at the Lighthouse

Adriano, who has lived at the Lighthouse since 2009, is known for his easygoing personality, a trait that enables him to get along well with everyone. Here is some insight into how he sees himself at age 17.

What are 3 things you are especially good at?

I’m good at algebra, social studies, and soccer.

What are 3 compliments you’ve received in your life?

I’m often told that I’m nice. My mom told me she likes when I help her. Kimberly told me I’m not a trouble maker.

What are 3 things you like about your body?

My head, my stomach, and my left foot (to make good shots in soccer!)

What are 3 difficulties you’ve overcome in your life?

When I passed to go to 8th grade, and when my class won the championships at school.

What are 3 ways you have helped someone?

I always helped Gervens when he was at our house. When Peterson had a fever, I was the one who put the compress on his head. When Kimberly’s at school, I’ll buy things for her.

What are 3 things that make you unique?

I serve people, I like to be obedient, and I respect people.

What 3 things do you value most?

School, church, and family.

What are 3 times you’ve made other people happy?

Mama Odette sent the younger boys on an errand, but they didn’t go, so I did the errand without her asking me. I told a joke about Toto in class and everyone laughed. When I carry water for my mom, that makes her happy.
