My name is Jacqueline Velasco but people call me Jackie. I don't know what to say, so here goes nothing. I'm a 16-year-old girl whose life is consumed with school and work.

I'm a very optimistic person, I know I'm capable of so much and I can't wait to see what the future holds for me. School was never something I was into or enjoyed, but as soon as I wild out my sophomore year and totally messed up with attendance and grades, I learned my lesson. School has become so important to me. I still complain about school at times but I'm really glad I changed and realized my grades and attendance matter.

My favorite show to watch is Grey's Anatomy. Ever since I started watching it I got really into becoming a Cardiothoracic surgeon. I actually learn so much from this show. This past summer I finished all fourteen seasons. Speaking of summer, summer has to be my favorite season. Not only because there's no school in the summer, but also because I get to wake up whenever I want and enjoy late summer nights with my friends. I appreciate my friends so much. I can literally count on one hand how many real friends I have. That's one thing I can say, my friends, are always there for me.

Like everyone else, I love my family. I appreciate spending time with them. My mom and dad have always been there for me when I needed them. Thanks to them I have what I have, i'll forever be grateful for that. I also have two brothers who annoy me 90% of the time I'm home. But I love them deep down.

Somethings I love to do in my free time is napping. Naps mean so much to me, it's crazy. when I'm super tired I can nap for five hours..on a school night. Some of my teachers hate me because I always seem to fall asleep during class. I surely do appreciate the teachers who let me nap during their class.

Like I said before, in 16. I was born on February 9th. I really hate that I was born that month because it always reminds me of my first heartbreak when I was in the 4th grade. Anyways, I think that's enough for me.
