Who am I?
January 9, 2000
This picture was taken 6 months after the day I was born, which is January 9th 2000 in India. I am the first child in my family and my parents told me this was the happiest day of their lives and my grandparents lives.
I started school at the age of 3 in India. The school I attended was a private christian school, I remember the first day I did not want to attend the school because I was going to be away from my parents so I cried a lot.
My dad bought me a brand new red bike when I was 4 years old, I remember him holding and beside when I was riding my bike. I rode my bike for the whole day and by the end of the day I didn't even need training wheels.

This when I first arrived to Canada, my cousins came to pick us up at Toronto Pearson Airport. We stayed in my cousins house for 1 month and then moved into a basement. It was really exciting for me experiencing new school, new holidays and new people.
In this month my parents and I moved into an apartment building at 25 Kensington Road. It was exciting living 8 floors up and I always used to look down the balcony. I went to a new school and made new friends.
My parents had decided like 2 months before that we will be going to India for vacation. It was really fun going back meeting my old friends and meeting my grandparents and cousins. Also it was snowing a lot in Canada at this time so it was nice to go to India where it was hot.

This is the year when I graduated from grade 5, I remember I received the good citizenship reward. It was an exciting day because we were graduating from grade 5 and heading to middle school. I remember we had a class party, watched movies and for our class trip we went bowling.
So my parents bought a House 1 month before and we moved in July. This was our first house and I was really excited to have my own room and not have to share with my little brother. Also there was way more space to play around than the apartment building.
This is when I graduated grade 8 and I was going to head towards High school. It was really fun we had a ceremony and after that we had a graduation party. Before that we went to the movie theater for our graduation trip, the graduation trip was not what we were expecting but it was still fun.
During my first year in High school me and my parents went to India to visit my grandma, It was fun because we were out of the cold weather and in the warm weather. I went sight seeing with my parents and it was really fun.
My Favourite things
I have a lot of favourite things! But my favourite thing to do is play soccer with my friends. My next favourite thing is the game console PS4. I like playing video games on it with my friends. Lastly, another thing I love to do is swimming. I've taken swimming lessons and I am good at swimming, I like to just relax in the water and think.
My Leadership Style
- I don't like to lead
- Work as a team
- Decisions are made by all team members
- I act as a Spokesperson
This symbol is used to represent my religion which is Sikhism. This also represents me and my family because we are Sikhs. My dad has a special made Necklace he received when he was around 16. The reason he received this was because this is the usual age when a boy becomes a man in our religion. There was a ceremony where he wore a phaag for the first time and he received this necklace. It has the Khanda Symbol attached to the necklace. I don't have a picture of the necklace because it is in India.
My Home in India
This home is really special to our family because my great grandparents bought this house when my grandpa was born. In this house my dad and my uncle lived most of their lives in. My older cousin Supreet and Ravpreet were born in this house too. Also my little brother and I were born in this house as well. This house has many memories of our family, this is the house where my grandpa and my uncle died in. My grandma and my cousins still live in this house and my parents, my little brother and I live in this house when ever we travel to India.
Maja is an area in my village, and every may any body from that area come together and have a picnic, my family and I always go to these picnics every year. They are really fun, there are games like volleyball, soccer and etc. We meet friends, and family friends at the picnic.

The test that was least helpful was the true colours test. I think this test was the least helpful because this test didn't ask specific question and I was only one point higher to be the colour gold. Also this test didn't seem like it was going to help me in the future because my strengths and my characteristics could of changed as I grow. Lastly, I had some traits from different colours that are my characteristics.
My four strengths are Supportive, Hard working, Cooperative, and Imaginative and strategic mind. I am supportive because I help out my classmates if they ask and I am a good helper. I also like to share my knowledge with others, if they need help on the situation. An example where I am supportive would be in math class because I usually finish my work early and I help out my friends with their math work. I am hard working because when it comes to homework and school projects I work on them first and play video games later, I sometimes get off track but I always finish my work and I put a lot of effort into my work. An example where I am hard working is when working on school projects, I take my time and work on it with all my effort. I am cooperative because If I need help I try to work on it by myself and if I can't solve it then I ask others for help. Also If others need my help I cooperate with them to help them out. Not only do I use this strength for school work but when I am playing online team games I try to cooperate with them to meet our objective. Lastly, I am Imaginative and have a strategic mind. I am very curious and always up for a challenge to cross the requirements. An example for strategic mind is whenever there is a challenging question in my math or science homework I always attempt to do it even if I'm not fully correct. After I ask for help to see if its correct.
My four weaknesses are that I am judgemental, my spelling, too helpful, and my laziness! I am judgemental which is having too much confidence in my ideas, and saying others are wrong, which can end up in a bad way because you can't always be correct. An example is when I am in an argument I always think I am right even though some of the things I say turn out to be wrong. My spelling is another weakness, I am bad at spelling and even if I try to sound out the words it will still be wrong. Furthermore, I am too helpful, If people ask me for help, I drop my work and help them out which makes me fall behind. In media arts I was ahead of everyone and I was doing work perfectly but others needed a lot of help, so they asked and I helped them out, I didn't get to finish my work so I was behind. Lastly, I am very lazy, It may be because I just don't like working out and all I want to do is play video games but I do enjoy playing soccer a lot. Its still not enough.
From all the tests something did surprise me about my self. But I tend to not rely on these quizzes because as I grow my motivations, personality, characteristics will change and the quizzes would say different things about me. Even though some are true about me right now but they will change later.
