YOUTH PROFILES “South Bronx United became my second family.” Guibel Marino, 12th grade, SBU Rising Stars “I was born in Ecuador and trying to adjust to the ‘American Life’ while growing up in the Bronx has been hard. There are many challenges and obstacles that I have faced, and the South Bronx has often not been a safe place or a fun place for me. But I do feel safe when I’m committed to achieving a goal and when I have people to support me. One extracurricular I found exciting, interesting, and helpful was South Bronx United, which became my second family. South Bronx United helped me improve my soccer skills, but most importantly my academics. This organization is unique in the way that staff, coaches, and other volunteers help student-athletes excel and achieve higher standards through individual attention. For example, applying to different colleges and finding scholarships can be difficult and stressful, but with the help that SBU has given me, the process has been much easier. I am now aware that I can succeed in college, and I’m looking forward to studying in an engineering field, maybe industrial or mechanical engineering. SBU has contributed to building my character on the field and outside of the field, as well as encouraging me to expect more from myself.”

“I have raised my average from a 70 percent to a 89 percent.”

Angel Reyes, 7th grade, SBU 00 la Furia Azul “I love to play soccer. It is my favorite sport, and my dream to become a professional soccer player. When I found South Bronx United, I was so thrilled because I would get more chances to play. I first played in the South Bronx United recreational league and then on a travel team. SBU has helped my soccer skills, but what I didn’t expect is that it has helped me most to improve educationally. I have raised my average from a 70 percent to a 89 percent. SBU has helped me get better in math and ELA specifically. It has helped me focus in class. The tutors are so nice to volunteer in order to help the students achieve. SBU has become like a family to me.”

“South Bronx United saw my potential and taught me that I have to do my part.” Musa Konteh, 10th grade, SBU 95 Blue Devils “At thirteen years old, I was struggling to find something to do and trying to make new friends. I was never athletic, and I was not fit. But, all of that came to a stop when South Bronx United came around. South Bronx United hasn’t just helped me get better at soccer, but it has helped me develop into what I am today. My grades increased dramatically from being a 2.3 student to a 3.4. I am more social than before and also more athletic and fit. South Bronx United saw my potential and taught me that I have to do my part. I gained confidence in myself, and I am still gaining more. Now I can say with confidence that I will follow my dream of being an engineer while still playing soccer for the rest of my iife.”

2013 SBU COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

“South Bronx United has taught me brotherhood, hard work, and dedication.”

JULIAN ATANGA was born in a small village in northern Ghana and moved with his family to the Bronx when he was seven years old. He carried a 3.3 GPA throughout high school at Mount Saint Michael Academy. Since joining South Bronx United 95 Blue Devils in his junior year, Julian quickly grew into a leader on and off the field. This fall, Julian enrolled at SUNY Geneseo where he plans to major in biology. Julian received a $1,500 award from the SBU College Scholarship Fund, which went directly towards tuition costs.

HENRY ADJEI KWARTENG was raised in Kumasi, Ghana by his older brother hoping to one day be reunited with his parents in the United States. That day came just three years ago when he moved to the Bronx to live with his father and three siblings. Shortly after his arrival, he joined South Bronx United where he played two years as a defender and defensive midfielder. Henry graduated in June from Harry S. Truman High School and now attends Sage College of Albany where he is studying health with the plans of becoming a physician assistant. He was awarded a $1,500 scholarship, which has helped covered educational and living expenses.

“Since I became a member of SBU, I’ve learned to work alongside people from different corners of the world, different religions and cultures. It has showed me that if we put all our differences aside, we can really work together to achieve something, whether in school, soccer or in work.”


2013 SBU COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

“At South Bronx United, I learned how to become a leader.”

ELIZABETH CIPRIANO was one of the first girls to join South Bronx United before a girls travel team had even been formed. Her two younger sisters soon followed, and Elizabeth went on to co-captain the SBU Rising Stars. Last June, she graduated from Bronx School for Law, Government, and Justice with a 4.0 GPA. She now attends Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, New York, where she also plays for the women’s soccer team. Elizabeth hopes to earn a degree to prepare her for a career in nursing. She loves her school for its intimate environment, caring professors, and helpful staff. South Bronx United awarded Elizabeth a $500 college scholarship, which she applied towards school supplies and living expenses.

“After moving to the United States, South Bronx United was the first community I found. They provided me with enormous support and have been a vehicle for me since day one.”

When KAFOUMBA DOUMBIA moved from the Ivory Coast at the age of 16, he spoke little English but knew he needed to play soccer. He soon found South Bronx United, which according to him changed his life. Kafoumba graduated from the Marble Hill School for International Studies with a 3.5 GPA after three tumultuous years that included the deportation of his father and having to transfer from a previous school that was in the process of closing. Kafoumba now attends the University of Maine at Farmington where he hopes to study engineering or computer science. He starred as a forward and attacking midfielder on the SBU 93 Sonics and completed his first collegiate season with UMF where he had a goal and an assist in 13 games. Kafoumba received $500 to pay for school supplies and transportation.
