My name is Michael Rivera, and I am in the 7th grade. I played many sports, such as rugby, boxing baseball, and basketball. Basketball is my favorite sport to play. I practice every day and review plays from my favorite basketball team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. I enjoy school and work very hard to be an Honor student. I know practice makes perfect and my parents push me to try my hardest in everything in life to achieve the best outcomes. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. At this point in life I am thinking a lot about my future. I don’t know exactly what I want to be, but I do want to be able to attend St. Edward’s High School, play basketball, and eventually get into a good college. My parents instilled in me that grades are a very important factor into getting into a good school and succeed in life.
