My name is Taheem Washington and I am 18 years old. One important thing to know about me is that I’m a unique person not like everyone else. I was born on the 27th of October in the year 2000. Something important happened to me when my family and I had a great conversation that showed me that school was important and ever since then I started taking school seriously. I used to live in Brooklyn. I was born and raised there until I was 16.
When I’m in school, I just like to come and get my work done. One thing I’m good at in school is Economics. I really like that class. The thing I love the most after school is coming home, going to the gym for an hour then coming home to play my games. I’m particularly good at video games. I actually played competitive gaming for two years. I got that way from practice.
Mostly everybody in my family is a gang member besides my mom and grandparents…
