My name is Lamya Sultana and I am a 10th grade student at John F. Kennedy High School. My recent honors and awards have included being Student of the Month numerous times at West Side Middle School and PBIS of Kennedy High School. My favorite subjects are Biology and Mathematics. GEAR UP has helped me to improve my English studies. I have participated in many different fun activities and attended summer program and field trips. I love GEAR UP. I am addicted to it.
After I graduate high school, I would like to attend the University of Connecticut with a major in Chemical Engineering or Science. I am interested in receiving different scholarships that will help me to become a doctor. One thing that people do not now about me is that I am from Bangladesh and I am Asian. I enjoy learning about different chemicals and how they work, technology and planting. My favorite food is Chicken Biriyani, which is a Bangladesh dish. I have been in the United States for three years now.
I am very grateful to my parents for their strict care as it helps me to become a better person. I am interested in exploring the world and helping others who are less fortunate. I have a “Go Getter” attitude and prefer to do things in order of importance. Helping others makes me feel happy when I see that they are happy. I dislike seeing all the hate in the world related to wars. I enjoy making new friends and being friendly and respectful to the teachers. I believe that the teachers are like our second parents when they help us to achieve our goals.
