My name is Daziann and I am currently in the eleventh grade. I want to let everyone know that this program is great. I am very lucky to be a part of this wonderful group of people.
Well, now that I got that out of the way, I will tell you a little about myself. I am in a dance company called Mambo’s Finest Take 2. We are a youth group from the ages of eight to eighteen. If you would like to check us out you can log on to our website. I also work in my sisters’ dance studio as the secretary and teach a children’s class on Sundays with my sister Tiffany. I am also beginning to record my demo and I am very excited about that. I hope to make it big with my voice. If that does not work out, I would like to be a lawyer or a veterinarian. I love to talk and I love animals but I am not yet sure which one I like more.
I have two great parents named Daisy and Jorge who support me in everything I do. My father is a building manager on Fifth Avenue and my mother is currently staying at home because she is going to have surgery. But all will go well, and she will start her new job in a law firm. I also have three sisters, two blood sisters and one adopted sister. Their names are—from oldest to youngest—Judy, Jorday, and Tiffany. Judy lives by herself with her two beautiful kids, Joshua and Daziann—she is named after me, how sweet. Jorday is about to move out because we think that she’s going to get engaged to her boyfriend of three years, Gene. We can’t wait—yes, my own room. My other sister Tiffany works for one of the biggest companies in America: Con Edison. She is also a full-time college student and a dance instructor. We are all very proud of her.
Something I love to do in my little bit of free time is hang out with friends. I am a movie fanatic. I also take voice lessons so I can become a better singer and my music career can take off. All I know is that I want to make a difference in this world, no matter how I do it. I am a pretty good student and work very hard to maintain good grades, but unfortunately, they do not meet my expectations. So I am trying very hard to get them to the level I want. A person I truly admire is a young woman by the name of Charmaine Lalane. She was the one who inspired me to sing. She also sang and made a big difference in peoples’ lives. She was engaged, and one month away from her graduation. Then one day she was in a bad car accident and is no longer with us. She was only twenty-one years old. She always told me I could do anything that I wanted, if I put my mind to it. I thank her for a lot of things in my life.
Well, that’s about it. I hope you enjoyed it.
