Robert takes his legislator to work…

Robert is a high school student not afraid to take risks and try new things. He wanted to work at a car wash and so he did. He is growing, learning, and setting new goals – fear of the unknown does not hold Robert back. Next, he wants to study photography. He invited Senator Lena Taylor to visit him at work to see what his typical workday was like.

He’s a youth with Promise, on a journey to achieve his personal, educational, and career goals.
