Sometimes it is difficult for me to understand some things because my English level isn't high enough. Last year I was in an ELD class so that means I speak more Spanish than English. Also sometimes i don't know how to pronounce or write correctly some words.
The scariest thing I have done is traveling alone to another country! I cant believe I overcame this fear because on summer vacations I went to visit my family in mexico (my mom, brother, grandparents, etc.). At the beginning this idea was making me feel nerve but when I was on the plane I wasn't anymore. I think this experience will help me in the future because I really liked it.
One thing that I value in my family is a photo album. The reason why I value this is because In the actual days most of the people don't use photo albums anymore, but in my family we have. I like looking at the pictures with my family because we remember different types of moments like happy ones, and even sad ones.
I love to drew mandalas to reduce stress. I start making circles, lines, dots, and other figures, until it starts looking like a mandala. When I'm not at school, it is very likely you will find me listening to music, reading, or drawing.
One day I would like to graduate and get a degree in occupational therapy, physical, or language, I am still not sure of which of those 3 to pick. I would like to be a therapist in any of these areas because, I would like to help special people with different skills. Also because since I was 9 years it attracted to me when I visited a rehabilitation center where my little brother was attended, he is other reason of why I would like being part of this.
One of my favorite musicians is Adele, She is a singer that is known because of her beautiful voice. She is also known because of her life story, all she passed for to be where she is right now. The genre of music I listen the most is pop. I also like listening to Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes and Rihana.
A place I would like to travel is Oaxaca Mexico. I have visited this place four times and I really love it because it is very colorful. I learned some things of their culture and traditions. They have a variety in their gastronomy, colorful clothing that are mostly handmade. also it has a lot of beautiful places to visit. in this state of Mexico we can find the biggest and oldest tree of the world. I would like to go again some day.
My favorite subject at school is math because I like finding different ways to solve an equation. I also like it because I think Math is interesting and entertaining because you can be creative when you solve a problem, equation, etc.
This year my goal is to have good grades in all my classes, and be more responsible. In the future the school I would like to attend is the UT (University Telethon). This is a University in Mexico City which is associated with the popular Telethon Foundation. This school prepares people that would like to work as a therapist in this foundation.
One thing I am proud of in my life is that last year i was in an ELD class, this is because when i was 7 years old I moved to mexico, so my English level decreased in 7 years i lived there and didn't practice. Now this year I have a regular English class. I was able to accomplish this by reading, and always paying attention in class.
What helps me learn the most is reading and seeing pictures. My type of learning is visual. I most of the times read to understand better something. Two things I can do to do to learn better are reading, and doing flashcards to learn new vocabulary words.
One of the things I enjoy is reading, because you can learn many things, also you can image a scene with all the details you read on the book. One of my favorite books is "100 days" by Nicole McInnes, because it has a beautiful friendship story.
