My name is Dominick. What’s important to know about me is that I’m a shy person, I can get nervous, I respect my elders, and I like to play basketball. My mom and my dad are from Mexico and they were both raised in Acatlan of Puebla. I was born in Brooklyn and I lived in Park Slope, moved to Sunset, now I live around Coney Island. The schools I have been to are P.S.10, M.S.51 now I’m in Park Slope Collegiate. Something important that happened to me was realizing that you can never trust people to live up to your expectations like my cousin. I always looked up to him but then he did something that made me think if I wanted to be like him.
I don’t know what I like to do in school, but what I do like is the teachers that I have class with they’re great, awesome, and cool. I like to play basketball and soccer. I’m learning how to play guitar and I hope I get good at it. I like to go to the park and just enjoy the view of everything, I like to play basketball, and mostly soccer. What I’m good at is listening to people and being there for them. I didn’t get good at it. I just like being there for people. My greatest struggle in life is growing up and leaving behind my childhood and learning new things that I didn’t know.
The most precious thing is my whole family and my grandparents but they passed away. I didn’t get to know them at all but I heard great things about them. The people who I’m lucky to have in my life are my parents because without them I would have never been here, and they always push me to study and work hard so I could be someone in this life.
