This was his first visit to Ireland. While there he got to see Dublin, which he says is a big and busy city with a lot of things to do. They also toured a bit of the countryside.

"I definitely liked it. Max and I walked all over. It was pouring down rain, but I was raised in south Alabama and Florida and it was interesting to see Ireland's big green fields and monastery ruins. It was cool," he said.

The boys were accompanied on the trip by their teachers, and the founder and director of Ohana, Lettye Burgtorf, and her family.

In addition to the insight he imparted to those he spoke to, Carlton said he also gained something valuable from the experience.

"When I got done with my presentation my teachers said we were best in show. I thought they were just being nice until we got a job offer as consultants. I gained a lot of self confidence and self esteem from the experience," he said.

“I was very proud of them,” said Burgtorf.

While he may do some consulting in the future, Carlton said his desire is to attend the School of Art and Design in Savannah and design video games.
