Kamal and his family live in Lantern housing. Kamal is the oldest child in his family, and this fall, will be the first to attend college in his family.
Lantern’s Education Services Manager first met Kamal during New York Cares Winter Wishes when he turned a simple request into a creative and fun poem.

And now we can celebrate one more accomplishment for Kamal — he’ll be attending SUNY Oswego this fall!
