POSITIVE PEOPLE IN PINECREST – WILLIAM FULTON
 
William Fulton, a senior at the Wolfson Campus School for Advanced Studies, moved to Miami a little over a year ago from Chicago. Miami is a different world than the suburb of Chicago he lived in. “The weather was certainly a change, but the opportunity to meet new people with different experiences has been so rewarding,” he says. That doesn’t mean there weren’t adjustments to be made. “I was halfway through high school,” he says. “I went to Downers Grove North High School with kids I knew from kindergarten.

I like it but it’s very heartbreaking and sad.” Whichever unit he reports to, he does basically the same thing, run errands. “It’s pretty much whatever department I feel like going to, that is the one I go to, either errand services or oncology,” he says. “I’ve seen almost everything.
