I’m Cristin Jarlin Tolentino. What’s important to know about me is that I hate drama , I love dancing , cleaning , cooking, I love shopping and also taking pics. That is why I want to become a photographer. One more thing is traveling. The ethinc and cultural heritage in my family is Dominican. This means that I have Spanish,Taino and African heritage. I was born in the United States of America in the Bronx, NYC. The neighborhood where I used to live is Kingsbridge . Schools I have been to are P.S..46, TEAM 254, Clinton High School and now PULSE High School. I don’t really have anything important that happens to me.
What I like to do in school is go to each of my classes until school is over because that is what I like to do mostly. And with extra curricular activities dancing, craft, music, yoga, photography. What I am good at in school is listening, speaking, and doing my work. I prefer to do my academic work on paper since I hate doing it online. What I enjoy doing outside is being on my phone and going right to bed and falling asleep . What I am good at is reassuring myself, how I got good at is making myself available to them. The show I watched when I was little was Dora the explorer. I was obsessed with her. I enjoyed learning Spanish and exploring.
Well the MOST important people in my life are my mom, grandma, dad, sister and brother, aunt and uncle, but the ones who are precious to me the most are the two strongest women: my mom and grandmother. They work hard to make sure we all have food on our table and put a roof over our head especially as Latina women. We see them struggle and do this for us and show us how independent they are. So I am very lucky to have them in my life even if we have our ups and downs. They are the ones who keep pushing me to keep on with my career and education in school.
