I’m Dajanique. I am a seventh grader who currently attends Kipp Bayview Academy. I am 12 years old, my birthday is on June 15th. I was born in 2003 to Stanley and Natasha. Yes, i am the oldest and I somewhat hate it. For now, I am the blogger.
In 2012, my dad got a phone call saying that his brother (my uncle) had died on April 9th, 2012. When he died, I was very sad because I thought of all the times when he would take me to the park and I would cry because he would push my too high on the swing. I also thought about when he would pick me up and give me and taunt me with my favorite oatmeal cookies. I knew I had to continue with my life because everyone has to eventually die someday.
In 2013, my bestfriend lost her life in a fire. On an early morning Saturday, at around 12:30am, a fire broke out on Treasure Island. People say her family forgot about her, I disagree. I think they probably couldn’t get to her in time. I really miss her. I remember two days before she died, it was Valentine’s day and she wanted a sucker from me but i didn’t have enough. So I didn’t give my class any because i gave some to her. That makes me feel good when i think about it. I love her though and I really really really really really really really miss her.
Now, I work at something called 15 Seeds. It’s an after school program that helps kids explore learning topics that interests them. I attend every Thursday and Sunday. I work with Jahziah, Calianna, Jahem, Daquan, Angelo, Ja’Shoun, and Dominique. The real person i get along with is Calianna. She’s like my bestfriend. We both are sort if always quiet. Our teachers are Mike and Veronica. Our two camera people are Trent and Nasi. We do activities. We have two teams, a sales team and a creative team. I am a blogger right now, so I am apart of the creative team. I love this job. We are interested in learning how to make money so we are starting our own company.
We went on field trip to Andy’s work in downtown to work on our new business. He works at Meta Designn. He is our business development mentor.
The girls Dominique and Calianna (excluding me) worked with our music mentor. When I first walked into the room they gave me an attitude about being in there which I didn’t like. They were rhyming and rapping and thinking of new creations. They were looking at new beats and were trying to find lyric to fit the beats. They were listening to instrumentals for future raps.
All the boys were working with Andy on our new logo design for our company. Jahem and Daquan were rapping along to a song.
Daquan was really feeling himself rapping and dancing.
That day was a good day for Jahziah I was so proud of him! He was really quiet and nice and only had one screw up today. He didn’t do anything bad.
Angelo was filming everything that happened.
Jahem was drawing a crown for our logo and kept saying I messed him up. The boys listened to “BandGang” (a music group) to focus,
Daquan cursed a lot.
The boys had a lot of creative ideas for our logo.
That day was a pretty chilled out day. I am excited to build this company 🙂
