Vancouver Whitecaps FC are honoured to have Armaan Kumar from Canada SCORES as Kid Captain of the club's home match against Sporting Kansas City at BC Place on October 17.
Armaan is a natural leader in his Canada SCORES after school program. He is tenacious and always gives 110 per cent in everything he does. He is kind and caring and stands up for those who are being bullied. He genuinely cares about each and every person and doesn't let anyone feel small, whether it's soccer, school or in life. He has learned to express himself through poetry in Canada SCORES and wrote a heartfelt poem about his mom who passed away.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
My heart is dead
Because I can't see you
Although that makes me sad
I can't do anything about that
However there are a few things I can do
Like being grateful kind and happy
And when i get older I'll give back
To the people that supported me and had my back
Just like you
And I won't forget about the people that helped me and you
