Jason Roias, Hope High School 2014 graduate, recent candidate for the Providence City Council and co-Founder of “Hungry Fridays” –
a community service organization feeding the homeless of the city, was the guest of the Hope Life Skills class.
Today’s Hope Life Skills host was Darwin Morales.
Jason spoke about his present goals.
“I want to help Providence be a better place
by serving all its citizens. This is why I ran for City Council and will probably run again in the next election. I learned a lot in my election defeat which I plan to serve me to win the next election.” Jason also spoke about getting ready for college. “Mr Cronin told me about his recent conversation with 2018 Hope High graduate, Sara Jackson, now a freshman at Providence College. Mr Cronin and I have also talked about Marta Aparicio’s similar experience as a freshman at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
Like Marta, Sara and many other Hope graduates, I was not prepared for the academic challenges of Rhode Island College my first semester.
I encourage you all to
read and write MORE, NOW, so you’ll be prepared
for the assignments your college professors will give you. College is a lot different from high school.”
Jason also spoke about other life experiences where
perseverance, honesty, empathy and a strong network of successful people
have represented the Jason Roias brand which have and will hopefully continue to serve him as he pursues his aspirations for success.
