Hi I'm Ben, and I'm in seventh grade at North Morgan Middle School. I like school because I like to be with my friends, but the homework – yuck! I think it should be banned! I live with my parents and my younger brother, Chuckie. He's annoying because he's always following me everywhere. I would say I have a pretty happy family, but my parents are too strict. They are always on me about studying and getting my homework done. Especially now, my grades weren't so hot last semester. Still, I would say I'm a pretty smart kid. I've never really had to study. My hobbies are video games, basketball, football, and skateboarding. My favorite video game is Road Ninjas, and my friends think I am really good at it. Oh yeah, I'm also on student council and in choir.
What is Ben's favorite video game?
People always ask me what ADHD is or what ADD is or how they are different. I wouldn't say I'm an expert or anything, but I've been dealing with it all through school. My first grade teacher thought I was having a hard time focusing, so my parents took me to a doctor who figured it out. I still have difficulty concentrating sometimes even with medicine and lots of support. But that's only part of who I am. I also love to sing, create with art, and spend time with my friends. Other interesting facts about me; my Dad is a Seismologist (that means he studies earthquakes) and mom is a nurse. She is also Japanese, so I'm half Asian. Because she is a nurse, I often have to get my little sister Cali ready for school and that can be a hassle.

Hola! Mi nombre es Elías. I live at home with my mom, my dad, and my younger brother Fabian. Oh and my black cat, Luna. She always keeps me company. You probably guessed that we speak Spanish at home. My mom is an English Language Development teacher at a local school, and my dad teaches high school math. Middle school is pretty good so far. I like my teachers and classes, and I am doing the Robotics club too. I'm not always the most outgoing, and I don't always feel confident, but I know my friends have my back.

Looks like you've saved the best for last! My name is Penelope Whitaker. I have to say, I am probably the most stylish girl at North Morgan Middle School. All the girls ask me where I get my clothes. Fortunately for me Daddy is quite wealthy too, that's why my step-mom, Melinda, dresses so nice too. I don't get to see my Mom too much because she lives in another state, but my Angora rabbit, Bun Bun keeps me company and keeps my secrets. My best friend is Ruby, and we've been friends since we were little girls. She's the closest thing I have to a sister. Sometimes it gets lonely at home.
