My name is Christian and I am from the Bronx. I have 2 brothers and sisters that live in Queens. We aren’t as close as we used to be. I live with my mom and aunt. I like to play many different sports like football and basketball. I hope one day I can make it to the NBA or NFL. Both of those have been a dream of my for a long time. I am 17 years old and was born in April. In middle school I used to be into video games like crazy. I used to play for money and tournaments. I stopped because I almost died in 2014.
Some of my favorite subjects to learn about in school are history and math. I also like to play all types of sports. Art is something I hope to get better at. History is a subject I am very good at and can’t wait to learn more about . Out of school I like to take trips in the city and eat a lot of ice cream. Also I get out to see many NBA games.
I feel safe in my community for many reasons. One may be that I know everybody in my neighborhood. No crimes really happen in my surroundings and there are no gang activities. My community is really small and everyone has pretty much lived there for 10-plus years. The skate park is a place where a lot of friends meet up and just chill. Stores around my house know me and my family. And some people feel like they have to protect me because of my family.
