Surviving 7th Grade with Cameron

By Laila Dames

This past semester, I had the honor of following Cameron around Lakewood Montessori Middle School. Although many middle schoolers tend to be a bit rowdy, Cameron proved to actually be the peacekeeper among himself and his classmates. He is a prime example of a well-rounded star student, who is popular and respectful.

I cannot thank Cameron enough for welcoming me into his life. I know it was definitely a bit awkward to have a random college student following you around class, but Cameron handled it with grace (even when his friends teased him). Cameron is the type of kid to give you hope for the next generation. He is truly an inspiration to myself and his peers. I can't wait to see where life takes him!
