Anthoney and Tara:
Each box told something about the teen.
Who am I?
Well, who you think: Easy, son. High school's almost over, almost made it out that door, and I'm not going back...at least not for awhile. Traveling is the plan for this traveling man. Traveled here from Jamaica before I started school, always went back and forth to visit the family. Miami's great, but I'm thinking of Europe, Paris, Berlin, Vienna. London. There's so much! Want to see everything, can't land here. Not yet. Too much that's too cool that's not been done. Not yet. Surfing's great. Scuba diving, great. Gonna learn how to bar tend, and travel and see everything there is to see. Send post cards, and folks will just have to wait and see what becomes of me.
Happy! That's me. Tara! Ya See? Happy as can be! I sing that every morning, part of a song. I write songs, dance, work out. I'm gonna be a star. How about you, girlfriend: I'm a sophomore, just look older. My school's cool, Chicago. See my nails? My sister-in-law, Rochelle, she does these nails. She's the best, has her own shop. Everybody watches what we do. I'm always first. Does hair, too. I hang out at the shop, been learning. Might work there next summer. Mom and Dad work for the City. Mom's in the Parks Department, Dad in Housing Authority. They talk about school and pensions, security. retirement! Can't here it! I sing my songs and walk along and go to school where I can rule!
