Be a Buddy: Meet Mykel

At 13, Mykel already has a plan for his future: "to go to college to weld, and be a mechanic and build my own race cars."

He has experience behind the wheel and working with his hands.

"When I lived in Arizona, I helped build a little go-cart," Mykel explained.

Math is Mykel’s preferred subject is school. Outside the classroom, he loves playing video games and going to the skate park.

"I like riding around, doing jumps and stuff," Mykel said.

If you enjoy a good adrenaline rush and are mechanically inclined, you could be the perfect big brother for Mykel.

"I could go do more things with my big brother and he won’t be as scared hopefully to do like jumps and stuff at the skate park," Mykel explained.
