Powell is the last borne of four and he is eighteen years old. His father is a retired teacher and the mother is a local Seamstress who earns very little from her job and she is the only one earning in the family. So that means she has to pay for every bill which makes it hard for her to raise school tuition for Powell.
Powell is a very talented and smart boy who has come up with many different projects for his class that have fetched for him and his school awards of recognition. Offering him sponsorship would mean giving him an opportunity to showcase his talents of invention which he would never have a chance to use if left to the parents.
