My name is Kevia Fenton I am 16 years old and I go to Oswego High School. I’m in the 10th grade and my favorite subject is English because I love to write and sometimes read. When I get older I want to be a registered nurse and want to work with the elderly in a nursing home. I want to work with older people because I feel like they are just left there and don’t have people to talk to. I also like how they are sweet one moment and cranky the next. I grew up on the east side of Aurora but now I live in Oswego with my mom, dad and my 6 siblings. I’m the third oldest so I’m almost a middle child. I like to clean and organize for my free time but I like to decorate and watch movies when I can.
I first came to camp at FVCA when I was 6 years old. I remember that I was scared and I know I didn’t talk that much. My favorite counselor was Marissa and the best part from camp was getting to sing all the Riverwoods songs. The more years that I come I’m getting out of my shell. I know if it wasn’t for Ms.Revella and the people from camp I wouldn’t have become the person that I am today.
I have been coming to camp for 10 years and what I have learn through coming to camp is that it is okay to try new things and not be afraid and take on new challenges everyday. I have learned that God is always there and I can talk to HIM all the time. I have participated in both CORE and Crossover in the summer and my favorite activity in Crossover was when all the girls were playing the games on the slip n slide.
I also participated in the school year program called TNT and I have been going since FVCA started the middle school TNT. I’m in high school so I’m in the older group and what I like most about TNT is the college and career prep and Bible study, because in college and career prep we learn new things about what we need to do to get ready for college or the career that we want to pursue. In Bible study we learn about topics in the Bible that we can relate to and things that could help us in the long run.
