Joseph Chege is a gentle soul. He is kind and loving to his younger brother, Paul. Soft-spoken, Chege is a natural listener and interested in understanding his friends at Flying Kites. He enjoys helping the house-moms and volunteers with tasks around the house. On the football field, Chege has proven himself to be a great team player and a strong defender. Never one to take the ball and charge the opposing team, Chege patiently holds back to protect his team’s goal. When he grows up he would like to serve his country. In a letter to President Obama he wrote, “I will do things people will understand. I will advise people and give them help.” Chege cares deeply about how his teachers see him and often asks them for their "observations".
