Altariq is a handsome, sweet boy with a smile that could light up anyone’s day! Kind and generous are two of the best words to describe Altariq. His favorite activities are playing and watching basketball (he is a NY Knicks fan!), drawing (cartoon characters are his specialty), playing video games, and, most recently, learning to cook. He is so excited to be a part of the local recreation league's winter basketball team. Altariq has shared that he would like to be a chef when he is older so he can cook for people. He sees how happy people get when they are eating a good meal with one another and wants to be able to help bring happiness to the lives of others! Altariq enjoys school and is doing well academically. He loves math, but doesn’t have the same passion for language arts.
