I'm a student at Bronx Academy Senior High in Soundview. My goal’s are to graduate from high school and move on to college, to proceed in being an officer for the NYPD. My dream is to become an astronaut for NASA, but unfortunately now that I'm older I'm scared of really big heights. My personality is to be kind at times, but if there's something I don't like, I will get really mad very fast.
What I like to do at school is gym because of working out and also getting healthy. It's like there are two benefits in one. Another thing I like to do at school is math because there are so many ways to solve a problem, unlike in science where it only has one way. One good thing about school is that my teachers are all kind and respectful, so it's like they're my family but only in school.
What I like to do outside of school is hang out with my friends or if the weather is bad, I'll stay home watch TV and sleep all day. I love to play basketball and it's my favorite sport and a little football at times during the winter. I also like to be with my family and just watch a movie or something.
A couple of poems about me:
