When I get older I want to attend UCLA. Both my Mom and Dad went went to UCLA for college and loved it there. One day, they took my brothers and I to the campus. We visited the library, the football field, the soccer field, and took a long walk exploring the campus. We even went to the student lounge where there was a cafe and comfortable chairs for students to sit on and do homework.
In my opinion, sushi is the best food in the world. I can eat any kind of sushi whether it is raw or cooked. My favorite sushi restaurant is called Kabuki. They have all kinds of sushi. Once my mom, dad, brothers, and I tried to make homemade sushi, but it didn't turn out to be as good as we thought it would be.
Guess where the most magical place on Earth is? CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE!! I love California Adventure. The first time I went was with my Mom and my cousins this summer. We went on all the rides multiple times and had a blast together. Since that day, every time I think about this theme park, it lights up my day.
My favorite sport is basketball. I have been playing basketball since I was in kindergarten and I continue to play it. I play on a team with a bunch of my friends and we always have a great time playing together. Although I play on a team, I also love watching the NBA. My favorite team is the Golden State Warriors. I have been to one of their basketball games in Los Angeles when they were competing against the Los Angeles Clippers. I love them so much I might go to one of their games in their arena all the way in Oakland.
My first name, Lara, originated from Russia. Back in the day, Lara was short for the name Larisa. Many people in the English speaking countries found out about my name from the original novel 'Doctor Zhivago' by Boris Pasternak in 1957. There are also different meanings to my name in other countries and in their religions like in ancient Greek myths.
