My Personal Narrative BY: sydney

My Story

I was born in Elmhurst, Illinois on November 28th, 2003. My mom is Stacy Charles and my dad is Paul Charles. I have an older brother named Ian. There wasn’t much to do in Elmhurst. My family would take me to cubs games when I was 2 but I don’t remember them. Sadly when I was 4 years old I moved to Oregon, Wisconsin. It didn’t matter much to me because I was so young.

When we first moved I didn’t have any friends but then I met a few of my neighbours and we became best friends! I soon started school at ‘La Petite’. There is where I met Lily Eisele, Teagan Phillips, and Aiyona Calvin. I remember not liking ‘La Petite’ because of the teachers.

But soon I went to kindergarten at Prairie View Elementary (PVE). I was at PVE for grades K-4. I met a bunch of friends there. My favorite teacher was Mrs.Updike. She was my kindergarten teacher. I’ve always enjoyed school because I like the classes and I like seeing my friends everyday. My favorite class is Science.

Sports have a big impact on my life. I’ve always enjoyed sports of any kind but I love soccer. I started soccer when I was in 1st grade. I was on a team called ‘Blue Lightning’. We were pretty good for a bunch of 1st graders. Currently I am playing on an older team for soccer. I am playing U15/U16. Which means I am playing 15 and 16 year olds as a 13 year old. Recently I found out I love volleyball so I am going to start to play that sport too. When soccer season is over I swim. I enjoy swimming because that is where I met majority of my friends.

In 5th grade my family and I heard some really bad news about my Grandpa. He had pancreatic cancer. My Grandpa and I are really close and same with my Grandma. Last year on March 19th, 2016 he died. It was very sad.

In my free time I like to do any type of exercise. Biking, running, swimming (etc.) I also like to hang out with my friends. We usually go to movies or just hang out at someone’s house. I also love anything to do with water. I love tubing and kneeboarding. I also enjoy boating. My favorite place to go is my grandparents house because they live on a lake and that is where I spend majority of my free time.
