Faiza's picture

My name is Faiza. I am 13 years old. I was born and raised in New York City, and I still live there today. I live with my parents and my little sister. I used to have two pet fish. However, they passed away almost three years ago. My favorite sport is badminton, my favorite dessert is ice cream, and my favorite color is blue. My favorite thing to do out of all the possibilities is talk. I have had many turning points in my life. The time I learned to cook, when I learned to sew, and when I found out another talent I have and that's drawing henna designs. They all affected me because once I learned how to sew, cook, and draw henna designs, it caught my eye and I started doing that on my spare time.

I attend The Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria. I am in the eighth grade. Ever since I started school, I always had math as favorite subject. I also like humanities science, and physical education. My favorite thing to do in school is play badminton, as it is my favorite sport. Talking to my friends during lunch is another one of my favorite things to do in school. I give importance to all of my schoolwork, homework, etc. I believe that education has a great influence in life because knowledge helps us succeed in so many ways. Determination is key, because if someone has a will to succeed, they will gain stamina to do so.

I do things outside of school. I play badminton with my little sister and draw henna designs (which includes putting henna on my hands). In addition to that, I like cooking. I know how to cook rice, noodles, vegetable rolls, eggs, fried chicken, fried shrimp, and much more. As I mentioned in the first paragraph, I like to sew; although I'm still a beginner. My mom is teaching me and I improve each time I practice. Not only for sewing, but for most things, like cooking and putting henna on using various designs. I believe the key to success is that determination conquers all, and "where there's a will, there is a way".
