My name is Rushelle but my aunt calls me Maddona. I am twelve years old. My birthday is in march 16,1990. I was born in Southeast Greater Hospital. My favorite hobby is basketball .One memorable thing that happened in my family was that my aunt and uncle passed away.
Telling the Story This is the person that I did a report on. His name is Bob Marley, AKA Robert Nesta Marley.
Reggae's most transcendent and iconic figure, Bob Marley was the first Jamaican artist to achieve international superstardom. He was born February 6, 1945 in rural St. Ann's Parish Jamaica. His mother was a black teenager and is father was white .In 1963 Marley and his friends got together to make a group called The Teenagers. He worked in a factory in Newark, Delaware. He died on May 11, 1981.
People I Admire
I admire lots of people like my parents, singers and other people like that. I admire people like Aaliyah and some other people I admire them for what they do. And I also admire my teachers from elementary school for what they do also because if it was not for them I wouldn't be here right now.
For my vacation I am going to go to the Audubon Bird Sanctuary in Jamaica. It is made for citizens.
Some of the recipes that Jamaican people eat is curry chicken, rock cake. They drink sorrel and eat brown stew fish. But they have other good foods and drinks like that. The curry chicken is the best thing that is there to eat, but the Chocolate cake is the best desert. They have other cakes like rum cake and they have banana bread cake. You can go to the Web to find the recipes.
This is a man from Jamaica I think that he was a old king or something like that. The picture on the right side is another one of Jamaica's hot spots it is called the Port Royal it is a nice place. The other picture on the right with the man dancing is a picture of a man who was born in Jamaica and he is known for dancing. His name is king Boggle.
My personnel goals are to go to college, graduate get a house and a job and live my life like any other smart person would do. I don't want to be poor or nothing like that soIi am going to try to do what I have to do so that I will not be poor. .
Hopes for the Future
For the future I want to be a singer like Ashanti or I want to be in the WNBA like one of them famous basketball players. I have been playing basketball since I was about 8 years old. I want to play for the Mystics; or, if I can't play with them, I am going to play for another team. Also, my hopes for the future is to marry Lil Bowwow.
This is my future husband.
Visiting Washington and Senegal
Despite its problems, Washington is one of our favorite cities. As home to the 20th century's greatest power, Washington has quickly earned a place among the world's leading cities. Not much more than a bog 200 years ago, the District of Columbia now hosts world class museums, green parks, monumental architecture, and the tangle of government that represents the freest, most prosperous nation on the planet.
This is a city that every American should visit. For although Washington isn't the country, it is here that you can find the most concentrated expression of what the country is. From the towering monuments to the past to the buildings where history is being made, the city seems designed to evoke the sense that you are in the midst of something special. If Americans don't feel a twinge of patriotism here, they're probably immune to the feeling.
When planning your trip, don't forget Alexandria ,the 18th century just across the Potomac.
Senegal is in Western Africa the area of Senegal is 196,190 sq km. Senegal joined with Gambia to form the nominal confederation of Senegambia in 1982. However, the envisaged integration of the two countries was never carried out.
