I'm a student at International Community High School in the Bronx, NY, and I'm a participant in the 2014 Youth Voices Summer Program.
Hello! I’m Marilyn I am 14 years old and I am a Guatemalan teenager. I have been living 1 year and 3 months here in the United States. I am a friendly and respectful person. I enjoy playing basketball with my little sister and reading books to improve my English. My favorite subjects in School are Math, because I found interesting by playing with number and sometime its hard but I try to do my best, and English, because its help me by improving my Speaking. I Like to meet new person and their experience as I like to share my experience too. Coming to United States did a big change in my life because I have to accustomed myself to a new environment and a new type of living.
Something that I like to do at school is practice Math. Some students told me that “you are crazy” because I like to do math and I Said,” Each person has a different point of view about math, I found something interesting, math class and that is what I like”. Another thing what I like math its because my Mother was a math teacher In my country Guatemala so she inspired me, and each time I like more math.
When I am out of School I love going to the park and play basketball with friends and my Little sister. Also I like listening Bachata( it’s a Hispanic type of Music). I Like to dance too. I have been enjoy two summer in here USA, as I can see is too different from Guatemala, and I like it because I enjoy going to barbecues with family and friends.
