Malik (nickname Big Fella) is really good at math and likes working with numbers. His family, friends and teachers say he’s thoughtful, nice, helpful and funny. Some of his favorite things to do are playing basketball, playing on his Xbox One, watching movies and just hanging with his friends and family. “I got mad skills on the basketball court!”

What's for Lunch?

Malik made his own lunch to eat at home, and it was delicious! His little brother took the picture of him.
