Hello, my name is Taniya, I am a student at Tabb Middle, I am in a class where we write about school events, and other activities, for the school newspaper. I love to run track, sing, dance, and hangout with my friends and family.

I’ve been running track since I was in 1st grade. I started running track because, my mom was in the hospital, and we decided to put me in track because I needed something to do in my free time. I run for an AAU league so it’s very challenging, but I love it. So far, I’ve collected lots of medals, and I even ran in the Jr. Olympics. I run the 400,800,4x800, long jump, hurdles, and sometimes the 200, and 1500. The 800 is my favorite because I can perform the best. Running track helps with many things such as, stress, health, and it can get you a college scholarship.

Throughout my childhood I’ve been many places, and enjoyed many fun experiences. Just two summers ago, I was moving from Alaska to Virginia. We drove over 2,000 miles. First we went through Alaska (from anchorage) to Canada, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, then stopped in Michigan to visit family. While we were in Canada we stopped at the Fantasyland Hotel. The hotel was located inside the Fantasyland mall, it had different floors with different themes. The hotel was amazing, it was also inside a mall that had an amusement park and a waterpark. Our room was Polynesian themed, it even had a hot tub in the living room. My family and I shared a wonderful view of Edmonton, Canada. We spent time at the waterpark as well, it was very fun and big. Next we visited family, in Michigan, we couldn’t stay there for long because we still had to move in to our house in Virginia. When I arrived in Virginia is was surprised by the heat. Living in Alaska sure does change your perspective about temperature. Moving to Virginia is just one of my favorite expeditions.

My friends are some of my favorite joys, they help with a lot. My friends and I hangout almost every day. Even just walking around our houses is fun with them. We love to listen to music while singing and dancing. They bring out he best in me. I can always count on them to make me feel better, or just have a fun time. My family is extremely goofy, we love to make each other laugh. I have two siblings, a brother and a sister. I am the oldest one, it’s quite a struggle. Even though they can be annoying they are like my closest friends. I often have to baby sit my siblings because my dad and mom work a lot. In conclusion, I love my family, friends, and my life outside of school. Those are few of the things that make me, myself.
