Romello Pace

“My advice to any one going to Operation PEACE is to make sure you don't act up or you will not be able to attend field trips.”

My Name is Romello Pace but most of my friends call me one of three nicknames, Mello, Young Mello, or Zion. My favorite is Young Mello. I am a six grader at Intown Academy located about two or three blocks from my home.

My family and I have been living in the Old Fourth Ward a little over seven years. I have four sisters and there's one boy, me. I am the oldest. My sisters also attend Operation PEACE. In school my favorite subject is Language Arts. I think I like it because I find it much easier than the other subjects. I also enjoy playing sports. My favorite sport is basketball. I really enjoy playing it. I think football is fun to but your chances of getting hurt are probably greater playing football. Although I do know you can get hurt playing basketball too.

I have been attending Operation PEACE since I was 7 years old, which was about 5 years ago. It is a fun program. It is really fun though in the summer program because you get a chance to go out of town. I have been to Florida, and Virginia Beach with Operation PEACE. We had an awesome time. My advice to any one going to Operation PEACE is to make sure you don't act up or you will not be able to attend field trips.

My future plans are to be a famous rapper or basketball player. I chose these two things because I think I am good at them. I would recommend Operation PEACE to any child. You might get yelled at when you are acting up, but don't worry about that, it will still be fun.
