My name is Nia. I am 13 years old and I'm in the 8 grade. I was born on January 5,1989 in Washington D.C. but I live in Maryland. In my spare time I like to swim and dance. One memorable event that happened in my family was when my great grand mother died. The whole family was so sad. It was a tragedy and I don't think the family will ever forget that moment.
Telling The Story
I did research on Jacob Lawrence.
He was a painter. In his art he told what it was like in black life and in black history. His work began when he moved to New York and took free art classes. An interesting fact is that when he was 23 years old, one of his series, "Migration,'' was featured in a major downtown exhibition. "Migration" told about the black exodus from the South to the North.
The one person I admire is my mother. My mother has always been there for me when I needed her. She is the rock that holds me together. When I have a bad day, I can run to her and she will solve all my problems. She knows when I'm sad; she knows when I'm happy. Even though she is a single mothe, she does a good job being a mother and a father. I know it's hard, but she pulls it through and keeps a positive attitude. I love her very much and I know she loves me too.
Jamaica is a great place to just hang out at if you need to go away and want to be alone. The weather is great even when it's December it's like 87 degrees there. The currency exchange there is good because in the U.S. 1.00 is worth 48.01 in Jamaica. I would love to go there one day because I know I would have a good time.
Here is a Jamaican recipe that I like.
Personal Goals /Howard University
Out-of-state students: 14%
Fraternity members: 1%
My personal goal is to Howard University. I want to go to this college because it seems like it's a good school. It seems like the students work hard but also have a good social life to.
Hopes For The Future
My hopes for the future is to go to college and become a a very successful person. I want to graduate with honors at the top of my class. I want to be a pediatrician because I like kids and it's something I really would like to do.
