My first memory was probably when I was in Texas at my dad’s house and I was about four or five years old. We just got back from getting my new Fila’s (tennis shoes).We were just hanging out at his house and he asked me what I wanted to eat and I said waffles and candy. I thought he would say no right away, but I guess since I didn’t see him that often he said yeah to be nice. I walked to the window and looked out. Then I noticed the pretty view from up above. I began to yell, “MOM! MOM!” Out of the window. After I was done my dad asked me if I wanted to go home and I said no. I’m not really sure what happened after.
My most memorable birthday was in seventh grade on March 5th. It was the last day of traveling basketball and our championship game against Jordan. Our game was in Savage, Minnesota. I woke up to my teammates in my house, waking me up. They made me breakfast in bed. My parents were at work and told me they couldn’t make my championship game. I was kind of sad about it but at the same time I was still happy because it was my birthday. Then it was time for the game and I was just in the zone like no other. I scored 16 points that game and we won 33 to 29. We celebrated after by taking silly string and spraying it at the coaches and me. It turned out that my parents were at my game the whole time as a surprise. We went to Red Lobster all together and had cake. Then I got an iPod video which I’ve always wanted back then. I got other things too.
My weekend was really good. On Friday I hung out with friends and we were talking about the party that was going to be on Saturday. At the party everyone was just having fun and a good time. There was alcohol, but no one was drinking. That night my friend’s neighbor called the cops on us because I guess we were being too loud. The cops showed up and crashed everything. The cops saw alcohol in the fridge and decided to give us breathalyzers because he thought we were drinking. Not too long before the cops showed up I just put some minty gum in my mouth, which makes you blow higher when you’re doing a breathalyzer even though you’re not drinking at all. By the end of that night I got a minor and had to go to court. The outcome of it all is that I got grounded and it shows up on my record.
I started playing basketball when I was a little kid but started playing on an actual team when I was in second grade. I love it more then anything. It was the greatest thing in the world to me when I was a kid and still is. I enjoy being with friends and just learning new things about the game of basketball. Currently I am a starting point guard on the varsity squad since freshman year. I enjoy it a lot. In the future I hope to pursue basketball in college. I am planning on attending the University of Tennessee. They are the current state champs for women’s college basketball and have been for a while. I plan on meeting their coach because I have read about her and she is one of the top coaches in women’s college basketball.
My friends and family mean the world to me! I have two brothers and two sisters and I am the middle child. My youngest brother is two, my youngest sister is nine, then its me, my older sister is nineteen and my oldest brother is twenty-six. My mom is from Sacramento, CA and my dad was born in Congo, Kinshishia. Out of 100% they are about 85% of my life. Without them I don’t know what I’d do. I enjoy sharing good times with them and making new memories. Without my family and friends I wouldn’t have anyone to talk to about certain things or share personal things with. I cherish every moment I am with them. I am also up for meeting tons of new people and having plenty of fun!
I love traveling all over! I enjoy it so much because you’re not in your normal boring state. You get to see and visit things you don’t see everyday. I’ve been to 32 states so far in my life. I was born in Houston, Texas and I’ve visited all of the states down south. I love being down south because it’s always hot and they have extremely good food. Also I enjoy their southern accents and their southern hospitality. My other favorite place to go is to California. I enjoy going there because I get to see tons of family, shop and I get to go to Eddie Murphy’s mansion.
I wanted to work this summer because I wanted some extra money and learn new experiences. Something that I like so far, is learning new things on the computer and meeting new people. Also I like being on the computer editing and making slogans. Things that I don’t like are writing and reading. Things that I learned are improving on my verbal skills and editing skills.
In my future I plan on meeting tons of new people, having my dream job, having fun in college playing basketball, and living with roommates.
