Every day on his way to work Patrick McConlogue passes a young man who lives on the streets — a guy whose eyes still shine with the light of determination and intelligence.
Leo accepted the offer of programming lessons.
Patrick promised to write updates on his blog (Medium.com), letting his readers know how the experiment was progressing.
In the first August 25 update, McConlogue wrote that Leo really is a genius: “As I sat there becoming increasing stunned, he rattled off import/export prices on food, the importance of solar and green energy, and his approval for ‘efficient public transportation initiatives [referring to NY’s new Citibike]’.”
“He is smart, logical, and articulate. Most importantly, he is serious.”
