My name is Nile Gayle. I was born and raised in The Bronx, and I’ve lived my entire life in New York City. I am half African American and half Jamaican. I currently work as a paraprofessional at a high school in Manhattan. I’m currently working on my second masters at Lehman College to become an English teacher for grades 7th through 12th. English has always been one of my strongest and favorite subjects while going to school. It also might be the reason why I’ve always loved writing. My goal when I become a teacher is to help students become more efficient essays writers so that they can pass both the English and ELA regents exams.
In my spare time I enjoy working out and watching sports. I like jogging, doing push ups, sit ups, lifting weights, and bike riding as well. I occasionally go to the gym and enjoy using machines such as the treadmill and the elliptical. Sometimes I also play basketball there or play basketball outside at the park when it’s warm. I also like swimming, going to the pool and the beach. A couple of other things I enjoy are cooking and traveling. I also like going out to eat and to the movies. I also like to play video games. Most of them are usually sports games. I even have a large collection of sports jerseys because I’m a huge fan.
Because I’m a sports fanatic, I spend the majority of my free time watching sports. My two favorite sports are baseball and basketball. I also like football and a huge wrestling fan of the WWE. My favorite sports teams are the Yankees, Lakers, and the Packers. I often get tickets for some of these sporting events and go with family and friends. I’m like a human jukebox because I love music. I’m a big fan of Hip-Hop and Reggae. I’m a big fan of Nas and Wu-Tang Clan. I have a large collection of CD’s and a ton of downloaded music on my phone. I also enjoy going to concerts as well. Last but not least, my favorite color is blue and my favorite thing to drink is Apple Juice.
