Composition

ABOUT ME

I was born on 23 January of 1988 in Ibiza. At that time, I was living in a house with my mother, my father and my maternal grandparents. After a few years, we went to live in Santa Eulalia Del Rio.

It was at the entrance of the town, beside the road. It had a ground floor and a first floor. My father, my mother, my sister and I lived on the first floor. My maternal grandparents lived on the first floor.

When I was 3 years, my sister was born. I remember that after she was born I had a very good companion game. We used to play with Barbie, with the bears, and so on. The only thing that I hated was that we had to share a room.

At the age of 8, I did my first communion. One of the presents was a Persian cat. I called it Yago. Yago is now 12 and he’s still in top form, despite the fact that an infection (a year ago) in particular scared us a lot.

We also had a very pretty Siamese. The two cats were very good friends. At present I cannot say the same. One lives at home with my grandmother and Yago with us.

At the age of 12, I started my discovered music as a hobby. I started to play the flute at the same time as I was having my music lesson. I met a very special person, one of my best friends at the moment, in music. She’s Mary.

Until the age of 14 I went to the secondary school Xarc in the village where I was living, but before beginning the third year of ESO my friend Mandip went to live in Ibiza town and I wanted to start at another high school.

Then, I decided to go to high school Mestral in Ibiza, where would probably go Mary, another friend of mine and my cousin.  At that time I met a boy called Yannis. We hadn’t decided to meet before, although we had been chatting a lot in messenger. We met that day.

We have been going out together since that day, and we will have been together for five years, next year. He’s very special to me…

I was in this school until I finished the “Bachiller”. Then, I did my selectividad exams. I though, when I had passed my exams, I would make a biology degree. However, my marks were not as good as I had expected and the mark that I got was not high to be a public university in the mainland to study biology. Finally I knew that in Ibiza I could study Special Needs Teacher. I was very interested in it, maybe because I have an aunt with Down syndrome.

  I’m very happy to have chosen this degree course, because I’ve learned a lot and I still got to learn.  If I think about the future, or not so distant, I’m a bit lost. I’m doing the third year of my university studies and I think by this time next year I will have finished it.

I think that soon I’ll work on what I’ve studied, and also I’m thinking about studying something else to increase my knowledge. Maybe add some other specialty such as to be a speech therapist. I’m also very interested in that Programs Transition to Adulthood (PTVA) for people with disabilities. I’m aware that soon there will be a center for this it out.
