Hello, my name is Monica Fontes. I am currently 16 years old and I am a rising junior at Fenway High School. This summer I will be working at the Bowdoin Street Health Center as a healthy food access intern. I’m most excited about changing my habits and eating healthier and spreading the word to more people.
During the school year, I like to keep busy participating in a few things such as: sister-to-sister group, student ambassadors, softball, and I also do community service at the Cleveland Community Center. I am from Dorchester and I am Cape Verdean. I have two siblings. When I have free time, I like to enjoy myself with friends and go out.
Stay tuned for more blog posts from me in the weeks to come!
