"Untitled," Maria Castillo, Ninth Grade, Marta Valle Secondary School

I am a crazy girl who loves basketball.

I wonder if I will ever become famous.

I want to play with Jason Kidd,

Michael Jordan and Lebron James.

I pretend that I’m playing in front of millions.

I worry that I may not make it into the

Major League All-Star Game.

I cry when people tell me that I won’t make it.

I try not to let them dampen my dreams.

I dream that I will marry an MVP.

I hope to become a role model for young people – all over the world.

I am a crazy girl who loves basketball.
