Miguel Angel is one of the new special needs children at Emanuel House. Unlike most Dominican children with disabilities, Miguel Angel attended school when he was 8 years old. Because of kids being mean to him and his mother’s inability to pay for him to go to a special needs school, Miguel Angel hasn’t been to school since. Miguel Angel has now been at Emanuel House since July 2013. He loves school and is seen often carrying a notebook in which he writes. He is independent, very friendly, and opens up quickly to new people. Miguel Angel likes to dance and to go places with his mom.
Current Age: 19 years old
