Introduction

From the insightful perspective of his mentor, Greg H., comes an uplifting update on Malachi, a resilient and talented youth in the Friends of the Children - Tampa Bay program. Malachi's journey, marked by both challenges and triumphs, underscores the profound impact of mentorship and support in shaping young lives.

A Story of Resilience and Achievement

Despite the instability of moving between group homes, Malachi has shown remarkable resilience, maintaining excellent grades with all A’s and B’s.

A Shared Passion for DJ'ing

Greg H. shares more than just mentorship with Malachi; they share a passion for DJ'ing.

The mentorship sessions that include practicing DJ'ing 1-2 times per month have become a highlight for Malachi, fostering his talent and confidence.

The Gift of Opportunity

The gift of a small DJ board last Christmas opened new doors for Malachi, allowing him to practice his skills and explore his passion further.

This milestone is a significant achievement in his journey of personal growth.
