This great city has done a lot for Said and others like him.
Boston, Beantown, the city of champs is the only home Said knows. As a child, this great city welcomed him 27 years ago from the refugee camps of Africa. In this city, he learned the English language, got his first job as a paperboy, learned how to rollerblade and drive a car. Said knows Boston is a city where people take care of each other. He is grateful for the teachers, neighbors, friends, community workers, that supported, believed and pushed him to dream BIG through hard work and grit. Said is proud to be a Bostonian and the byproduct of Boston Public Schools, Boston Public Housing, and the Boston Summer Works program. He believes everyone in Boston can thrive if given essential life resources and equal opportunities. But he knows that every Bostonian does not have essential life resources and equal opportunities. Which is why he needs your VOTE, support, to create a PROGRESSIVE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY BOSTON. He wears an orange shirt to represent the change and progress Bostonians need.
