Maddie Garcia
Hi, my name is Maddie Garcia. I'm in eighth grade and live with my family in California. Like most people my age, I play sports and have a few hobbies. I've done many sports in my childhood (flag football, gymnastics, and track), but the sport I love the most is soccer. I've played soccer since I was 4 years old because soccer is very common in my family and I have always enjoyed it. According to my dad, my first word as a baby was "ball" (coincidence?). This may have been so due to the fact that I was surrounded by sports. But sports wasn't the only thing I was exposed to when I was young. I was also exposed to art. My mom and dad both did art often with materials such as acrylic paint, oil pastels, chalk pastels, water color, and of course colored pencils. To this day, I still like to use my parent's art materials, but I more often doodle with a plain pencil. I also do other things for fun, such as play video games, listen to music, talk to family and friends, and bake/cook. On the weekends, I am more likely to be at a family member's house than in my own home. I have two aunts, two uncles, and six cousins that live near my house, but most of my family members (my only grandma, four aunts, four uncles, and my thirteen cousins) live two hours away (not including the rest of my family that live in other states and countries). When I see family that are near me, It is most likely just to hang out, but when we go to my far away family, it is usually a big deal. We've been there for Christmas, Thanksgiving, weddings, quinceaneras, and birthdays. When I'm not with family, I like to either make random things, such as smoothies, for fun or play video games while calling friends. If I'm in a good mood, I often go to the park to spend time with my sisters. Overall, I do and love a lot of things, but there is still a lot more I have to discover about myself.
