RJ first entered StepUp Ministry over the summer with his mother, Lashawnda, and infant sister, Lauryn. The first thing the staff and volunteers noticed was his love for his sister. RJ was very protective over Lauryn and often asked about her when they were separated. After RJ was finally able to settle into his classroom, he amazed staff with his artistic abilities. As RJ was completing an art project, volunteers watched as he began to drum on the table with his colored pencils, holding them as if he were a seasoned musician. At just 3 years old, RJ is already learning to play the drums, practicing with his church and at home, and often creates arts & crafts with great attention to detail and symmetry. RJ’s naturally artistic disposition is sure to lead him to a future of success through self-expression and creativity!
