Hello my name is Mari and, I love to ice skate at my camp. It’s really different from my school, since at my school I’m the only girl of color there. At camp there are people who have the same race as me, same religion and I see people who look like me on a daily basis. This was my first time making friends with the same interests and same race! Since I had learned to rollerblade earlier, so when it was time for my first time on the ice I was pretty good. This was my first time making friends with the same interests and same race! I met new people, and I had so much fun with it! When I grow older, I want to use some of my talents as ways to speak up. For example I want to write a song about Black Lives Matter, and I would use ice skating to perform an inspiring piece that encourages people to stand up with me! So, I would like to become an activist who ice skates 20 years from now.
