Bio Poem Natalie Nice, funny, weird, shy at times Mariana, Sarah, Laura, Rosario Abel & Laura Rodriguez Who feels great after a long nap and who feels terrible after crying, I hate crying. I like elephants, funny people, and I like the idea that I'm still living.

Who would like to see a beautiful sunset at the beach, who would like to see all the wonderful wonders of the world, and who would like to see lanterns rise to the starry beautiful night. I live in Phoenix Rodriguez

Three Doors • An opportunity- this door is a hardwood brown sort of color with a very nice golden knob. Behind this door an opportunity to go to an university with great culinary arts class and a great marine biology class as well. • A challenge- this door is open all you can see inside is pitch black.

Rules to Live By As I continue my life, I am going to live by three rules. These three rules will be my focus for making me a better person. One of the rules that would help me become a great person would be to not lie because of course lying is bad and you should always be honest no matter what. Another rule that would help me as well would be to treat others like you want to be treated. This a very important rule because nobody wants to be treated bad on the contrary you want to be treated in a good way, and to be treated nicely you have to do treat them nicely as well. The last rule would be very respectful no matter what. Being respectful is a very good trait that every human living I this world should have, we might not use that trait constantly. But I will because it would be a rule to live by. Those three rules that I chose would hopefully make me a great person.
