The Gold Coast, it sounds so remarkable, a place where any person will dream to grow up. A place where there are no limitations to what you can be. A place which is ranked one of the highest income counties in the United States. The Gold Coast is no other than Fairfield County. This place is one of the only places I know.

I want to be able to get some kids off the streets and show them that there is a whole a lot out there for them. I want them to know they have the same chance as their competition. I hope I can make a change on their lives by opening their eyes. The streets will always be there but there’s always a chance that you
