Abdias becomes a role model for others

Published on 21 August, 2018 by admin

Abdias learned about Glasswing through a notice to study English. As he got more involved with Glasswing’s work, he became interested in volunteering in extracurricular clubs and enrolled to volunteer in the Homework Club at the José Miguel Vasconcelos School. “From my participation in the clubs, I realized that there are many children who need attention who have their own problems. As a volunteer, I can help to improve the life of someone else,” he said.

Later, Abdias found motivation in classical music and began studying piano at the National Conservatory of Music. His effort led him to win a scholarship to continue studying at a private music academy, where he is about to complete his second year in the career of professional musician. Seeking more opportunities to get ahead, Abdias learned about Glasswing through a scholarship notice to study English. As he learned more about Glasswing’s work, he became interested in volunteering in extracurricular clubs and enrolled to volunteer in the Homework Club at the José Miguel Vasconcelos School.

“From my participation in the clubs, I realized that there are many children who need attention who have their own problems. As a volunteer, I can help to improve the life of someone else,” he said. This way of thinking has made Abdías not only get involved in the Homework Club, but also support the office one or two hours per week managing volunteer databases, assembling kits of materials, and supporting during youth entrepreneurship fairs.

Long term, Abdías hopes to perfect his English and join a call center as his first job, and to seek another scholarship to finish his career as a pianist.
