Meet Safia

CoverGirl16-May2016Age: 11

Grade: 5

Favorite color: Tie between lime green and neon orange

Favorite food: Mangoes and cheese, but not together!

Something I am proud of: I am proud that I am always open to trying new things… except weird food! I entered a French public speaking competition and got selected as one of a few girls to represent my school. I always participate in new experiences and opportunities, from joining sports teams for school, entering reading contests, to trying Improv!

Who I look up to: I look up to my parents.

Hobbies: Soccer, skiing, swimming, karate, cross country running, squash, volleyball, piano, reading, hanging out with friends, and learning computer programming with my Dad.

My pet peeve: When people bud ahead in line ups.

What makes me a Genuinely Unique Girl: I am 100% me, and that’s pretty original! I am interested in many different things and I try to avoid labels on myself or on others. Just because you are smart doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy sports or music. I work hard at everything I do because when I give something all my effort, I can see the difference it makes. My friendships are important to me and I try hard to be a good friend. Sometimes that means not taking sides when friends disagree. Sometimes, it means taking a side if someone is not being a good friend.
