PARTY LIKE A ROCK STAR

 

On Saturday, November 5th, my mom threw me a surprised 10th birthday party at The Candy Rush, in Brooklyn. I was sooooo shocked by all the guests who were hiding in the backyard until I opened the door to yell "SUPRISE".  It felt like my heart stopped for a minute.
Everyone who attended signed my super giant card that my mom made for people to write me birthday wishes. I felt so special to see how much people love me.








 
There were cupcakes, pink and silver beads for everyone to wear and cute give aways.

I want to thank all of my friends and family for coming out and celebrating my special day!

Black Girls Rock!!

On Saturday, October 15, 2011 my Mom and I went to the Black Girl Rock Award Show, taped in the Bronx at The Paradise Theatre. It was a huge event created by Ms. Beverly Bond! While I was there I was inspired by all the women who ROCK. Taraji P. Henson, Angela Davis, Laura J. Richie, Tatyana Ali, and Shirley Caesar were the few who were honored.
I took a picture with Mrs. Richie, the president of the WNBA, I started to cry because I never experienced meeting someone like her before.
I met Lil Mama, that was exciting, I like her as a judge on America's Best Dance Crew.
Tatyana Ali was really nice and looked pretty in her dress.  
K. Foxx, Hot 97 DJ.  Sometimes I get to listen to her on the radio in the morning.
Next time, I hope to meet  Lauri Ann Gibson the choreographer on her own show, "Born to Dance".

Have you ever  been to a Robotics Competition? On Saturday,January 8,2011at NYU Poly located in Downtown, Brooklyn there was a Robotics Competition to see which schools would go to Jacob Javis  Center. At the event there were 40 elementary, middle, and high school one of them was my mom's school, Mott Hall Bridges Academy in Brownsville and my school, C.S.21 in Bedford-Stuyvesant. 
It was cool to see some of my other classmates while they completed all their missions.  We all cheered and went crazy because we were very proud of our class.

After we went on a tour around the building. It was cool, I had fun looking at under water robots. Then it was award time.  My school came in 5th place and my mom's school came in 14th place. Everybody was happy because both schools will be going to the Jacob Javis Center.
