Grant Me Hope: Meet Jacob
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Hi, my name is Jacob. I’m in seventh grade and I’m 13 years old.
My friends would describe me like, um, like they think I’m really nice and very kind to them. I usually do really good at school and I usually get good grades and feel like I’m smart.
I want to be a cop when I grow up because I like helping people a lot and I want to fight off bad guys. I love hands-on activities like projects. We did like a-- we had to build a tower out of like Popsicle sticks and stuff. Out of Popsicle sticks, string, a spoon, rubber bands, tape, and stuff like that. I like craft projects a lot.
My favorite animal is like dogs and cats. I like writing songs. I’m really good at it and a lot of people like my music-- like rap, country, and stuff. I got a lot of different songs. I write my songs and sing them a lot. I was gonna publish them when I get older. I write about what’s going on in the world like, um , and what’s around me-- nature and stuff. I just think it’s fascinating to like get the pencil on the paper and stuff.
I would like a mom and a dad and some pets because I love animals. And then I would like a brother or sister or both. Just family activities like movie night, sometimes we can play like basketball. I love nature. I want a family that goes outside and walks with me and plays with like the woods with me and stuff.
