My name Is Kassim Karamoko I am a 20 year old that attends One Bright Ray Community High School. I've been a student under Mr. Carlos Aponte for about 1 year now. My fellow students and I have been volunteering all over Philadelphia and It has been a great experience for us. We are being of service to others and meeting fun and interesting people. Volunteering with him has been some of the best experiences I have ever had. I enjoy every moment of being of service to the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection, PHILADELPHIA!
My friend Sean and I interviewed Mr. Aponte on what inspired him to create The We Love Philly Program and help so many people. The experience was great. We learned a lot about being of service and what it takes to get out of your comfort zone in order to get what you want in life. We learned that Philadelphia needs to learn to trust each other again. Most people, from where I am from, feel that there is no inspiration in Philadelphia and Mr. Aponte is showing us that Philadelphia is filled with opportunities to help teenagers get out of the negative environment we were raised in. We are inspired to keep on serving the city of Philadelphia with him and hopefully make helping others a world wide thing. Check out the video below to see what happens when you take a couple hours to help those in your community and check out the podcast interview hosted by Sean and I near the top of our page.
