My name is Zulema, I am a 16 year old Mexican American. I’m a student at Green Dot Charter School. Throughout my life I have moved several times. I’ve lived in Mexico, Texas, a town called Middletown, and many other places. I have a huge family, and never finish meeting all my family members. Something important about me is that I enjoy learning new things. I think a lot about life, and life experiences. I’m a friendly person and I enjoy helping others. I put others before myself; I’m not a selfish kind of person. A turning point in my life was when I had to move to Middletown in 7th grade. A lot has changed ever since. I find things very interesting and always ask many questions; it’s part of who I am.

In school, I like to talk to my friends. I also enjoy learning new things. I’m very good at writing essays, poems, & stories. I enjoy writing and reading. I do not attend any extracurricular activities at this moment but I hope to join some soon. Even though doing school work and learning new things is sometimes difficult, I do enjoy being at school. What I don’t like is waking up every day at 6 in the morning and the amount of homework teachers give.

Outside of school I enjoy every moment I spend with my friends. I also enjoy shopping and visiting new places. I am good at socializing and meeting new people. I can say I make friends quickly and for the most part don’t really get into problems. I also help others that need help or comfort.
