Hello Everyone!

Hello everyone!

I am Victoria and I live in New York with my family. I am a fourth grader. I have an older sister. Guess how old she is and where she is? My older sister Juliet lives in San Francisco as she just graduated from college in the summer and started her first job there. As a result I do not get to see her very often. I miss her very much.

I love sports and my favorite sport is tennis. I play tennis two to three times a week. Two weeks ago I had my very first tournament in orange ball level 2 after having learned how to play tennis for about just 7 months. You probably have guessed the result – I lost the tournament to my competitors who played tennis for more than four years. I was a bit sad but I am looking forward to my next matches! Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Serena William and Sloane Stephens are my role models for tennis. When I grow up, I want to be like them.

I also like swimming. I have been a member of Badger swim team since last year. Kate, Sophia and Heather are on the team too. I often participate in swim meets. Sometimes I win my heat. Once I won my heat for 50 yard breaststroke and one for 25 yard butterfly. I love relays because the whole team work together. Once our relay team finished first, but one of us did something wrong and got us disqualified. Do you love swimming too? What is your favorite sport?

My favorite animals are baby cheetahs. They are cute, fluffy and soft. They can be very strong. They run very fast.What is your favorite animal?

My favorite food is sushi. California rolls to be exact. I love how they have crab, avocado and cucumbers. They are so yummy! The best part is that they have rice and seaweed! I love seaweed. I also like mangoes. It is sometimes sweet and sometimes sour. I like food that is sweet and sour. What type of food do you like?

So much for this post. I will mainly post about tennis, swimming and books that I like. Feel free to comment if you want me to post anything specific. Thank you for reading this post. See you next post!

Bye! 😀
