By Andrea, age 16, Michigan
My name is Andrea. I'm 16 yrs old. I am originally from Venezuela, South America. I enjoy snowboarding in the winter, and I play volleyball during the season. I pretty much just look up to my mom since she's the one relative that I have here from Venezuela. I love her to death. She's the one who has helped me become the wonderful person that I am right now. She's everything to me.
I go to high school and live in a small town in Michigan. It's not a very exciting place, but I love it. I have the greatest friends - Brittany, Kelsey, and Taryn. They are always there when I need them. I am planning to go to college after high school. I'm thinking about Western Michigan University. I can't wait, but I still have a long way to go and many things to learn. I am planning on becoming a model. Hopefully that works out - it's my dream. I've been wanting to do it for a very long time. Well, that's all I have to say about myself. I hope you enjoy it!
