I'm going into 6th grade and moving to a new school, Young Women's Preparatory Academy. I had previously attended Somerset Gables Academy West since I was 3 years old. I was born in Miami, Florida and most of my family is originally from Cuba. My favorite subject is Math. I have participated in various sports starting at the age of two including soccer, dance, swimming, and gymnastics. At five years old, I still played soccer, but I put more time and effort into dance. Even out of the studio, I wouldn't stop dancing especially on our boat every time we went out. I have been a competitive dancer for four years now. I really like to hang out with my family and friends on the weekends. I love eating out and I am not a picky eater. Recently, I have been learning how to cook from my dad. I enjoy playing with water balloons and when we go to Cuba, we bring them to play with my cousins and the neighborhood kids as well. Some facts about me are that I am confident, hyper, and I love to talk to people of all ages. I love art and spending time with foundations that help kids that are ill or have any misfortunes.
