Butera wants to be a weather scientist when he grows up so he can address climate issues that affect families like his own.
Before joining MindLeaps, Butera missed years of critical schooling, which he has since caught up on through the accelerated learning program. He appreciates having a guaranteed meal at MindLeaps every day, because his family's socio-economic situation means it is often his only meal of the day. Butera lives with his mother, who works as a cleaner, and frequently worries that their home will be destroyed by a landslide during the rainy season. These concerns have motivated him to become a weather scientist so he can help others in similar situations.
