Why Blog?

We blog to talk about our personal feelings on a topic. We blog because it is a privilege. Youth should blog because they can see more. Most youth only know what they know, but blogging gives them the chance to see others perspective. Youth can see youth around the world.

A little on me


My name is Mairim Perez. This is my senior year at Rhode Island College and I plan on graduating RIC with a BA in Youth Development this May. My passion is working with children. Currently, I work one on one with a special needs child who lives in Pawtucket. I love helping him and I truly am making the difference in his life. Moving forward I see myself managing more cases and advancing my career with special needs students. I feel like with my pervious major, Education, I was limited to just being in a classroom, but now as a Youth development major I can work anywhere from hospitals, to schools, to home based services.
