16 – Bronx, NY
What Are You Most Passionate About?
I’m passionate about the successes, fairness and virtues of this world.
Who Is Your Hero? Why?
I’d rather not have one. There’s not a lot of difference between heroes and madmen, nobody’s perfect.
What Is Your Favorite Sound?
My favorite sound is the only sound in your mind when all else is silent. Tinnitus, I think.
What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?
I am a 16 year old sophomore in high school attending an independent democratic school in Brooklyn. I live in the Bronx and commute and hour and a half each way to school. By being in a democratic school I have a say in what I learn and what goes on in my school. I am trusted to be a leader in my education and take on challenges that meet my needs.
Short Description Of Project
I don’t have access to a computer in my home and my school has 6 computers shared between 60 students. My own laptop will allow me to always have the internet as a resource for my school work and a great addition to my studying. Also, my school requires me to write a narrative transcript that describes all of the activities I do and self-evaluations that reflect what I am learning.
How Would A Laptop Help You?
A laptop will help me research colleges, write college essays, print forms and documents when I need them, and research and enroll in summer programs, and apply for jobs.
