Hi my name is Tres Whitlock. I go to Bloomingdale High School.
I am here to make a difference for my people.
I hope that you listen to what I have to say.
I want people like you to stop judging me.The feeling you are being judged by your appearance is one of the worst feelings a person can ever have.
You start to dislike life.
I want to be a young Moses and make a difference for my people.
I want everyone to stop judging people like me by what we look like.
I want to be in normal classes for my strongest subjects.
I hope this made the Board think and FEEL!
