Brandon Approaches Life’s Challenges with No Hesitation

story piece Brandon 130Brandon came to live with us when he was 12 years old. He and his brother needed a safe place to live and the guiding support of The Methodist Home. Despite those difficult circumstances, he arrived with a smile on his face. Even at that young age, Brandon faced the challenges in his life with “no hesitation.”

Now, three years later, he is a bright, athletic and focused young man. He has dreams of studying marketing/management and has set his sights on becoming the CEO of a large company one day.

As you may have guessed, Brandon is wild about sports. He plays both offense (fullback) and defense (middle line backer) for the Camden County Wildcats. Football has taught him much over the years, like “how to use mind over matter” meaning when you are nervous before a play, take on a winning attitude and “just do it…go plug that hole and make the play.”

Aside from athletics, including a budding career in wrestling, Brandon is a solid A/B student. While living at The Methodist Home, he has realized there are many good folks here to help him become a responsible young man. He is proud of the fact that he has improved in keeping his room tidy and is a likable guy. Describing himself as a quiet person, he said, “It might be tough to start a conversation with me, but I am the kind of guy you like to be around. I am worth it.”

Brandon claims the key to his success is to “trust what you have been taught and go for it with no hesitation.” We believe him and know his positive “can do” attitude, his desire to succeed and his winning smile will help him along the way.

At The Methodist Home, we put every effort into enriching our resident’s lives spiritually, creatively, academically and physically, in order to allow them to reach their full potential.
