I’m Jennifer, but I prefer to be called by my second name, Nicolle, with two Ls, please. I just turned fifteen in August of this year, 2022. I was born in Honduras in the year of 2007. I lived there for about nine to ten years of my life. For four years, I lived in Choloma, my exact place of birth, then I moved to my mom’s hometown, in Jano, San Luis. I was there for like four years after I moved back to my place of birth and lived there for like a year or two before coming to the U.S in 2019. When I got to the U.S, I lived in Texas for four years, where I finished 5th grade to 8 grade. I did 5th-6th grade in Pasadena Houston, and then 7-8 grade in the South side of Houston, in sunny side park. Although I moved from apartment to apartment, which forced me to move around schools, I didn’t mind that much because I got to meet lavish and dreadful people along the way. An example of lavish people would be my guy best friends/crush, Noel, whom I haven’t gotten over, and that was in 5th grade, I don’t remember much, I know he was about 11 or 12 years old, he also called The Grinch, that was my nickname he could only called me, yet I still chased him around the whole school after he called me that, he just laughed and ran as fast as he could, ah, good times. I lost all contacts with him after he moved, to who knows where, “Snapping 1, 2, where are you? You’re still in my heat. Snapping 3, 4, I still need you here with me right now-“ yet I still hope that I will get to meet him in the future, ‘Cause after all this time (4 yrs), I’m still into you(him).” An example of Dreadful people would be Jaqueline, the girl I thought I wanted to steal her ugly boyfriend, and the fact that she stole him, from her best friend is very, promising and also very concerning, I am not that type of friend though, also just so you know, they broke up, because he found out she was cheating on him, and that she was only with him for his money, which I told him after me and her stopped being friends. There was a lot of drama at my school that year, but it was worth it! Now I live in Brooklyn, and so far, it’s going great! 

I have a lot of strengths, but my top three are: being super positive, adapting in no time, and being flexible. I make everyone laugh. I also match everyone’s energy. I can get used to any new situation in a couple of minutes. Being flexible comes with the first two, and since I am good at both, it means almost nothing “concerns” me that easily. One of my work progress might be me still learning Korean. I’ve been attempting to learn Korean since I discovered kpop in 2020, but like any other teenager, I haven’t focused on it. That might be one of my bad habits or something like that. One of my accomplishments until now would probably be getting a medal for being good at history and graduating from middle school. I was in a pink dress with black blossoms. I also got to learn English in a month, so that’s an achievement.

About my family, well, I have three more siblings from my dad’s side, whom I have never met and only know about their existence. I have never met them, but I know the name of two of them, Kenett and Camilla. There is one before Kenett, but I am not well aware of her name; then my all I know is that she is the oldest at the age of 22, then Follows Kennett with the age of 20 and Camilla with the age of 18, then me with the age of 15, then all my younger siblings. My older siblings and I don’t have a relationship at all. On the other hand, my younger siblings and I have an okay relationship; but I think I have a better relationship with my brother. Even so, my relationship with my sister is not that bad. I have two parents, my mom, and dad. I don’t have a good relationship with either parent, my mom may think we do, but we don’t. I dislike both parents, mostly my dad, but even so, all seven of us still try to live as a family, although he doesn’t try that hard, and neither do I. Also in 2019 my parents got separated, because my dad was being abusive. My siblings, my mom and I moved to my aunt’s apartment, with her, 4 cousins of mine, and her boyfriend, but after five months we moved back with my dad, because we were having problems with my aunt’s boyfriend. They got separated after we left, because my aunt was mad at him for doing that to us, especially because he had them live with us for like 3 months, and both of them didn’t even pay rent. My mom didn’t pay rent at my aunt’s, but she bought food, and everything a house needed. (just fyi, my aunt’s boyfriend got mad at me for sitting on his favorite chair, while attending online classes, that’s why he kicked us out.)
