Phillip likes sharks and wants to become a marine biologist. He already has two fish of his own named Max and Miley, and at school he excels in science. Phillip spends his free time playing video games, reading, fishing and camping. He plays percussion in the school band and likes listening to the band Skillet. After school, Phillip is involved in soccer, basketball, baseball, digital media club and his church youth group. He is the recipient of the President’s Award for Academic Excellence, and his role model is his hard-working and encouraging mom. This is Phillip’s first trip to Washington, D.C.
