The Leopard

Maria Martinez, Writer

Hey, my name is Maria Martinez and I am a 15-year-old sophomore at East High school. I live in
Salt, Lake City but was born in Tulancingo, Hidalgo, Mexico. I came to the United States at age
3 and I’ve been here for almost 13 years. Life here at first was hard for me but later in life it got
better, I made some amazing friends that I adore so much and because of their support I am
here where I am today. I live with my parents and my 3 siblings, I am the second oldest child in
my parents’ marriage. My favorite subject in school is psychology and journalism because I get
along with my teachers and I’ve never took any classes like these before, so they are new to me
and they are fun classes. I also enjoy them because I want to become a psychologist and write
novels about different mental illnesses. In my free time I like to draw, skate, write short stories,
listen to music, and watch horror movies. My favorite kind of music to listen to is Indie, rap, and
r&b. I’ve been writing short stories since the 5
grade and ever since I’ve been writing, and I
really enjoy it. I would describe myself as caring, supportive, sweet, funny, shy, friendly, goofy,
and weird. I'm the black sheep in my family-- my sense of humor is different from theirs my
style, and taste in music. I like to hang out with friends and be outside and admire the stars and
moon at night and the bright blue sky with bright white clouds in the day and seeing the sunset
makes me feel peaceful.
