my poem



SONNET: Young Mind


The azure sky reflects her by the pond
She had hair as bright as the glowing sun
Eyes of almond covered by strands of blonde
There filled with secrets, she kept in a bun.
The heart feels scared, clustered pulse..so untamed
Chasing visions of their future, how cruel
But don’t worry young mind, he is unclaimed
For she was a beautiful little fool.
 Then comes night .. She struggles in her pillow
Thoughts of him thinking but not thoughts of her
He never knew there was a girl named willow
Throating dark sugar drinks, like coffee liqueur
Talking to the mirror, her only friend

She starts to realize it is the end

Relay for Life Cancer Walk - Community

My friend and I holding the spirit stick to represent our school <3
Since I'm an athlete, specifically a track runner I was very much interested in the Coral Springs relay for life cancer walk. I didn't do this service because I wanted more hours of community service, I did it because as a student government member I serve the community. I even stayed at the campus overnight to raise as much money as possible for the cancer victims. I very much care about those people who's lives have been affected by this chronic illness; as do a lot of people. Yes, I have had a family member who's life was taken away from cancer, and I did this for her. It turned out to be  a very fun and exhilarating event with lots of supporting people. At the end of the event, it turned out my middle school team was the  second team to raise the most money! I was so happy, not because we won, but because we raised 15,000 dollars to help! I also earned 15 hours of community work in that night alone.  I and many other people will fight for those battling cancer, they should just know that they are not alone. Never stop living your life to the fullest and be thankful for what you are and what you have because someday it can all just go askew.

My Accomplishment - first residential president

Ever since I was little, I've always wanted to be something great , to do something great and that dream has been my drive during the past years. When I first got to boarding school, I was scared: scared from being away from home, scared from being away from my parents, making new friends, being accepted. I didn't really know how it was all going to turn out. At home, I have always been involved in student government; since the 4th grade. Its something I love to do, its something that makes me reason with the person I want to become.Ever since that I have understood the meaning of responsibility.So my first year at boarding school I ran for president, people asked why and I said why not? Its something I love to do, I love public speaking. To my surprise I won, and it turns out the residential program were very happy. Apparently I am the first residential in meritas and my school's history to run and win presidency. I was happy; very happy and proud. This ties into my brand and logo because I believe in myself, I believe in leadership, I believe in the person I want to become. I will always strive for success

An Opportunity given

     Nelson Mandela once said Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. There is a sign engraved with Mandela's wise words in the subsaharan parts of Nigeria. He had the perspective that with education comes power because knowledge is key to success. When I was about twelve years old, my parents sent my brother and I off to boarding school. Not for any reason that we had recalcitrant behavior or that we were naughty. They did it from the conspicuous reason of love. They want the best for us and doesn't every parent. Nigeria isn't a bad place to start off your life, some parts of the country actually provide excellent educational services and schools but parents want the best of the best so they send their children to the best place where they will succeed exponentially. Now we are doing much better than we ever thought we would. I am still a class president, I am president of other clubs, I have gained more knowledge than I would have back home. Parents should  give their child every opportunity they can offer, one of the most important one includes education; because a world without education is a world dead.

LOGO explanation


The logo symbolizes a rainbow of cultures around me. It expands on my knowledge of culture; I can be a very diversified person at times seeing that I have traveled the world and seen a lot at such a young age. I know who I am but i don't know what I am. I represent the lollipop in the center and I diffuse all my ideas and talents in a colorful way. The drop of water is meant to symbolize myself. Some might say I have a bubbly personality which also ties into the design. The drop of water exhibits me creating a “ripple effect”. People tell me wherever I am around, I stand out, I affect them, I create an effect (big or small).

Description of me- songs

The Climb by Miley Cyrus
I chose this song because it means so much to me words aren't enough. The title of the song basically sums up the song. It says that theres always going to be another struggle and I have get through it because I'm a strong person. When I listen to this song I can relate to it very clearly; It makes me feel stronger and songs like this have the power to impact a person's life. Miley says to keep your faith, don't lose hope, keep dreaming, and never back down; don't let anything get in your way because you are stronger than that. I believe in the lyric of this song because life's a climb.

Oluwa lo-ni by Wizkid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bduk3JVAYuM 

 Although this song isn't even fully english I understand it because it is my language, Yoruba. The famous Nigerian artist, Wizkid, tells a very inspiring story of his life before God blessed him with fame and fortune. I highly respect this song because of where I come from and I can relate to the artist because we have the same culture, values, and morals. In the song he says if its up to God, I will do it, what you see sometimes can be deceiving so you have to opens your eyes and me smart in the real world. In that case, I will always keep Allah as your guide to success and freedom; Wizkid says thank God for what he's done for you, appreciate your life, appreciate you have one.

Wanted by Hunter Haynes://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruyaKdPfTN4

     This is actually a cute country song that I absolutely love and listen to almost everyday. My close friends told me this was one of the songs that describe my love life. They say that people want to make me feel wanted, they want to make me accept the love I think I deserve. Every single word in the lyrics is how I feel most times. I want to be wanted and loved. The line " I wanna make you feel wanted, I wanna call you mine, wanna hold your hand forever and never let you forget it..." makes me think of a time in my life when someone felt this way about me and I did as well. It doesn brignback a sense of nostalgia.

Who Says by Selena Gomezhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C6jG2ZLSq4

       This defines my attitude towards society  actually. The first line " wouldn't want to be anybody else." give you an idea of who I am. I am confident and although I do have my insecure moments there's nothing I'd change or rather be than myself. I am proud of who I am and I don't care about the negativity others add and say about me. Before people judge harshly, they should make sure they're perfect first; who are people to judge. This song makes me feel happy and comfortable with who I am. The title who says exhibits a person with their own state of mind who doesn't mind what others say. Selena's right, you have every right to a beautiful life.

Surah-An-Naba  Qur'an recitation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kay_gerBczY

          This is not song, it is an excerpt of the Holy Qur'an. It describes what religion I am and faith I have, that of Islam. I am proud to be a muslim and I wouldn't change my beliefs for anything. My artifact is actually the Qur'an and that's one of the things I treasure the most. It reads about judgement day and the Almighty Allah. I love reciting surah's from the Qur'an, it makes me who I am and this is just one of them.

Girl on Fire by Alicia

        For the past few years people told me I've been an inspiration to them and to others. My teachers, administration and others have told someday I will make an impact on the world, that I'm fierce and I'm going to do something great. So I did choose this song to describe my strong drive and core that I have, people tell me once they know me they can never forget me. The lyrics in the songs I've heard people say to me for example, "yes you're just a girl but no ordinary one. There's something about you that everyone treasures and you just stand out." So I guess I'll take this as an opportunity to burn and show people what I've got.

Ride by Lana Del Rey    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvb8wdBglpw

        This is a free-spirited song that describes the American dream. And although I'm not, I've always wanted to run free. I was born a wild child and I think I will keep it that way till the end. When she says 'Live Fast'- I'm sure she means to live in the moment, have fun, be... wild. Just live your life. I really like the words she used in her song because I can relate to them, "Being trying hard not to get into trouble but I've got a war in my mind." That's like the story of my life.
3000 Miles Away by Emblem3
  This is a song that makes me feel nostalgic all the time. My friends and I listen to it so often when we think of home. We are young teens in a boarding school far, far away from our families. We'll always be dreaming of a place called home. The lyrics in this song defines how I feel when I'm homesick, It think of the weather, I think of the people, and it does feel like its forever. "I'm not ok , 3000 miles away." I miss my home and I won't forget where I came from. This song makes me happy but sad; for when I'm here I wish I was there

All I do is Win by Dj Khaled https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-Vpw0xD9JU

      I know the song and the title might sound a little cocky but that's not my intention. All I've throughout my life is a bit of luck. The positions I've ran for in students government or clubs have been given/earned by me. And not to sound self-centered but all I've done is win and succeed. Haters can't bring me down or beat me down. I won't give up until I get to the top, and when I do, I'll say it all came from hard work.

Hall of Fame by Script  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jukv9Q1eR2g

    I believe that one day, there's gonna be a day where I'm standing in the hall of fame. My parents, people around always believed and told me one day the world will know me, I will do something they always knew I could do. I think this is one of the songs that describes me the best. Whatever I set my mind to I know I can achieve it; It's not going to be something typical, I want it to be something big. I'm an athlete, and now I believe I can do stuff that I thought never could be done by me.
