My friends are supportive towards what I want to do in life and my priorities. They all know that first is school, then it is my running, and then whatever else comes up. My friends motivate me to accomplish my goals. They help me with the small things, like call me to make sure I’ve done my homework or even ask who I felt about practice. My friends also help me with the big things like showing up to my meets and cheering me on or help me study for the big test the next day. I will get to my goals in life with my friends and there support. Not only do they help me, but I also help them. My friends and I are very similar and want the same things in life.
I like doing hair. Anything from blow-drying to braiding, I absolutely love it! People often make a living with doing hair by opening a salon or working at a shop. They style your hair and it will cost you a ridiculous price. Styling people hair is not something I look forward to making a career out of in life. It is more of something I would do part time. Doing people hair will make me very happy, but at the same time it is a job that you don’t need a lot to qualify for.
I have many hidden talents and they are all very strange. One of my best-hidden talents is that I could be a ragdoll. I am very flexible. Anyone can pick me up, wiggle my arms or legs, throw me, anything and I can mimic the motions of a ragdoll (only when I want to).

I also have a very good memory. I never forget a name or face. It is funny because my memory doesn’t work when it comes to school subjects. If I was at a birthday 6 years ago, today I would be able to tell you what you got, how your face looked, and what you wore. I can also walk on my hands. The people that know about my ragdoll and walking on hands skills, they often tell me I could have a career at the circus.
Many of my friends are my role models. My first role model is Josie Le. She been through so much in life and is very wise. She works, goes to college, plays sports, supports her family, and drives a cool car. My dad is also a role model of mines. He taught me that life is tough and he did that by giving me tough love. He also taught me that nothing is handed to you. You have to reach for it. No matter how much you want something there is someone else that wants it three times more than you. Life is nothing much but a competition and who ever wins is the champion. If I am not the champion, I will probably be working for the champion. He even tells me the Ricky Bobby phrase “If you’re not first, you’re last”. And after saying all that he’ll say “but no matter what if you win or lose as long as you’ve done your best, I’ll still love you kid”. My other role model is my friend Jamahl Smith. He is 16 and plays the base and drums. He plays at many gigs and gets $500 a night. Not only does he make money but he is also an advanced placement student. He respects everyone no matter what they do to him and knows how to keep his cool. He gives great advice and always looking for away to better himself.
Math is my third favorite subject after science and gym. The best I ever did in math was geometry in Mr. Jackson’s 9th grade class. My worst experiences, so far, has been in any type of algebra. I had algebra 1 in 8th grade with Mrs. Foster (Sweetwater) and algebra 2 with Mrs. Handlon last year. I am surprised I even passed the classes with B’s. There are so many variables and solutions in algebra equations. The graphs are beyond complicated to understand and the only way to ever finish a test on time is knowing where everything is on the calculator. I don’t even know how to use a calculator (unless it is simple adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing)!!!!!!! Geometry is simple, there are no trick questions. No matter how hard it is, you will always find the answer. You can help me as a teacher by explaining what I am doing, why I am doing it, and how. Many teachers like to let us self teach ourselves after looking at a 10-minute power point. That does not work with me. I’ll do problems, I’ll practice problems,and I’ll get them wrong, but once I ask what I’ve done wrong they’ll say look at your notes. Well I looked at my notes the first time and I still got it wrong. Actually explain to me the steps and why I am incorrect. I will make sure I will succeed in this class by doing my homework and putting the efforts into assignments.
