Meet The NYC School Kids Who Get To Meet The Pope

What are they going to ask him?

Out of the mouths of babes! Six kids get to meet Pope Francis, and they're very excited:

Six lucky third and fourth grade students from East Harlem are excited to meet Pope Francis when he visits their school - Our Lady Queen of Angels - this Friday. "Not many people are able to see the pope because they need a ticket, while us 6 won the lottery," said 8-year-old Aaron Diaz.

The youngsters were working on their recycling and conservation projects when The Seventy Four visited them at their school last week. They say they’re looking forward to presenting the projects to the pontiff, given his track record of promoting ecological awareness.

"Pope Francis likes taking care of the environment," said 9-year-old Ngueubou Kamwa. "We're showing him we follow his footsteps," she said.

Principal Joanne Walsh has been helping the students prepare for the pope's visit, along with their parents. "Me and my mom have been practicing a lot of Pope Francis stuff," said 8-year-old Allison Reyes. "I watch all his videos."

In addition to working on their projects and studying, the students are also hoping to have some fun with the pontiff. "I'm going to ask Pope Francis to take a selfie with me," said Ngueubou.
