My whole life I’ve always been a sort of a mix between an introvert and an extrovert. I like to be outside whenever I can, but I also enjoy being inside. When I’m outside I like to play sports, preferably basketball. I love and still do play basketball when I can. I used to play with friends and new people that I meet. Every day would be just as fun as the day before. Being inside my home is where I try to make my own fun. I usually play video games, or I watch movies whether I’m by myself or not. I’ve always been interested in movies. Whenever I watch something I have to see everything, even the boring parts. 

As I’m getting older now, my plans have grown with me. I plan to go to a 4-year college or university. I’ve recently been accepted to USCB. Go Sand Sharks! I’ve also applied to College of Charleston, and I’m waiting on a reply from them. I want to major in Computer Science or Networking. I will study as hard as I can to be as successful as I can be. I’ve had so many amazing opportunities as I’ve progressed. I won’t let them go to waste, and I’ll always be grateful for anything anyone does for me.
