I'm a student at New Visions Charter High School for the Humanities II in the Bronx, NY, and I'm a participant in the 2014 Youth Voices Summer Program.My name is Halimat Sulayman. I am 15 years old. My favorite color is red. I am an upcoming junior in NVCHS. I am very competitive and hope to be the valedictorian of my school. I am a muslim and i hope to go to a really good college like Yale to study business as my major and political science as my minor. I want to be a human rights activist and an actress. i lived in Nigeria and currently live in the Bronx. I have been in situations that have helped me realize that you don’t need to please everyone.

In school, i like to be a leader and be the best i can be in most of my classes. I have been in a lot of after school programs like softball, volleyball, helping hands, school newspaper etc. I like to write poems and act in front of my peers. I got an award for writing my monologue and performing it, i also got an award in english and was on the principal honor roll. My friends inspire me to push further because i like to outcompete them and get higher grades.

My school takes up pretty much my whole time but outside of school, i like to watch television and play games. I like to watch wrestlemania and a big fangirl of John Cena and Randy Orton. I pray and mostly read the Qur’an. I love fashion and sleeping. That's mostly what people need to know about me.
