I'm a student at the The Brooklyn Latin School in Brooklyn, and I'm a participant in the 2014 Youth Voices Summer Program.

Hey everyone! My name is Seyanna and I'm a student at The Brooklyn Latin School. I was born on May 29 1998 and have lived in New York all my life. I resided in Brooklyn until about 3 years ago when I moved to Staten Island. Who am I? I don’t really know. I hope to find out later in life but, as of now, I’m still trying to find myself and build my identity. What I can tell you about myself is that, on top of being quirky, awkward, and nice, I am unstoppable once I truly set my mind to something.

Believe it or not I enjoy school. I love my school actually; it’s a second home you could say. Now this doesn’t mean I like all the work I have to do, or that I love all subjects. Truth be told, my weakest subjects are math and science and because of this I can’t enjoy those class. Every other class I’m fine with, English especially. I can’t help but be happy to attend class and excited to get a new book to read. Although I tend to struggle with my writing, overall English is one of my better subjects. Surprisingly however my best subject is Latin. I have yet to get anything less than an A in that subject and I take pride in that. Academics aside, I am apart of the yearbook committee and student government. Since a lot of the other clubs are math, science, or sports related (my dislikes), these are the only extracurricular activities I’m fond of.

Outside of school I enjoy reading, listening to music and bonding with my family. My family is very important to me and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. A slightly fun fact about me is that I can memorize lyrics very fast without actually looking at them. I can listen to a new song once or twice and start singing along the second or third time around. My family always wonders how I’m able to do that and, honestly, I have no idea. Also, at times, I can be a good writer. Yet, like I said, I do struggle. So I hope this Youth Voices program will help me improve!
