"Class, today I want you to write an autobiography. Give a personal description. Tell when and where you were born. Tell about your parents. What are your skills and your dreams? Who are you?"
<i>Who am I? Nobody important, that's for sure. Writing this paper ain't going make no difference, neither. It ain't easy for kids like me to write a paper like this. Miss Jenkins just don't understand. It ain't going to be a very interesting autobiography, that's for sure...unless...I hopes I got time to use the computer before the bell rings.</i>
<center><b>Who I Am
<b>Everyone calls me Skip but my real name is Josh Rowe.</b>
<i>I think I'll change it to Joshua W. Rowe. That looks better. Hmmm... a Jr. on the end is even better. Joshua W. Rowe Jr....Cool! Maybe if I was hitched with a name like that, I'd be a famous football player, too. </i>
<b>I am black and six feet tall and skinny. I have a scar on my left cheek.</b>
<i>Man! That sounds like a police report! </i>
<b>I am sixteen years old and was born on July 4th in 1995. </b>
<i>Leastways, that's what I been told, 'cause I'm always blowing up like a firecracker when anyone bugs me. I don't rightly know my real birthday. Not that anyone cares anyway.</i>
<i>Where is a good place to be born? This Google map is rad! INDIA... RUSSIA... JAPAN...AFRICA... This report might as well be interesting.</i>
<b>I was born in Timbuktu in Africa.</b>
<i>Someday, when I get enough money, I'm going to travel all over the world. I'm going to see the volcanoes Hawaii and swim in the Barrier reef in Australia. I don't care none about Paris or Italy, but I'd like to see the buried army in China and ride a camel in Timbuktu.</i>
<b>My mother's name is... </b>
<i>I need just the right name...OPRAH, nah...DINAH, nah...Aha! </i>
<b>My mother's name is Serena Williams.</b>
<i>Ohhh, man! That Serena is a purty woman! I'm going to get me a woman like her someday. I was told my mother's name was Izzy Brown, but I don't rightly know for sure. I don't know if she was purty or not, neither.</i>
<b>My father's name is Joshua W. Rowe Sr.</b>
<i>... of course!
I never knew my old man, and he prob'ly never knew me, neither.
Skills? I got skills. I know how to do lots of stuff, like how to cross town without paying a cent and how to snitch food from the kiosks, but Miss Jenkins wouldn't understand.
Hmmm.....ATHLETIC WORLD RECORDS... Oh yeah...Perfecto!</i>
<b>I am a very skillful athlete. I have run 26.2 miles in 2 hours, 5 min., and 37 seconds. I have thrown 5,430 successful passes in football and hit 28 home runs in a season.</b>
<i>My dreams? I got lots of dreams, like having a real family and a home. I ain't complaining about the shelter or nothing. It's a place to get a meal and lay my head, but it ain't a home. It'd be cool to buy stuff in stores like regular folks 'stead of picking in the dumpsters alls the time.
I only gots five more minutes! I'm almost done, then I can split. Oh man! This stupid computer is so slow...Come on...come on...Finally! Oh yeah! This is what I want.</i>
<b>My dream is to be rich like Will Smith and own a red fancy Camero convertible with a V8 engine and a high-performance stability control system with a top speed of 190 miles per hour. I would own a beachside condominium in Big Sur in California and have a big 72 foot Princess yacht with sleek V-hulls and twin MTU engines so that I can cruise around the world to Hawaii and Australia and China and Timbuktu. </b>
<i>I hope Miss Jenkins likes this here report, 'cause I ain't doing it over. My life ain't important or interesting, but Miss Jenkins just don't understand.</i>
