AKA The World's Greatest Page

My Brother

I have an 18-year-old brother named Chinedu. He is currently studying at UT in Austin pursuing a career in pharmacy.

My Sister

My sister Treasure is 14 years old and is currently a freshman at Huntsville High School. Whenever I do anything, she is usually my partner in crime.

My Mother

My mom is the greatest woman in the world, the greatest nurse in the world, and a part-time diva. She taught me most of my life lessons, and pushes me to be the best I can be. She always expects the best out of me, and makes a lot of sacrifices for her family to succeed.

My Favorite Animal

My favorite animal is a lion. I always liked to think of myself as a king when I was younger, so the king of the jungle just seemed to fit. I also love The Lion King.

My Favorite Hobby

My favorite hobby is doing anything with friends, like wrestling, going to church, or even volleyball. I also thoroughly enjoy eating good food and helping people.

My Favorite Memory

I'm not really sure if I have a FAVORITE memory, but one of my favorite experiences was when I was at my pre-k awards ceremony at Stewart Elementary. I had gotten a few awards, and my mom, who had left work to come to the ceremony, was really proud of me. At the end of the ceremony, the teachers had been saving a special award for last. They played it up for at least 3 minutes and had all the kids eager to hear who the winner of the award was. I was sure it wasn't me, and felt a little disappointed that I wouldn't receive the award. When they announced my name, chaos took over the cafeteria. All of my classmates were madly cheering me on. After I accepted the award on the stage and turned to face my peers, I noticed my mom in her TDC uniform screaming "That's My Baby!", running up to the stage from where the parents were seated in the back. When she reached me, she lifted me, hugged me, and swung me back and forth with my legs dangling. I was a little embarrassed at first, but I later realized how much support I had from my classmates and how lucky I was. I thought everyone just saw me as the quiet African kid, but their applause reminded me that I was somebody.
