Frankie states that his “vision for the youth of America is to bring back hope.” He believes and exemplifies that those who are willing to put in the work will be able to accomplish their goals, no matter what obstacles they may face. He is described as patient, resilient and a positive force for others by Club staff and teachers.
Frankie has given back to his Club by working as a volunteer in the kitchen and as a lifeguard, teaching other members how to swim. He also dedicates his time to working at the BCYF Quincy Community Center in Boston’s Chinatown as a children’s swimming instructor and part-time youth swim team coach. As an active member of Keystone, he has participated in many national conferences and worked to clean up his neighborhood of Chelsea.
Frankie is passionate about spreading his motivation to do more, and he is extremely thankful for what the Club has offered him and his family. Through the Club he has been able to have two summer internships, one at State Street and another at Fidelity, and he plans to attend UMass Lowell in the fall to study Business Engineering.
