Speaking and Listening: My Autobiography

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

My Autobiography Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of me! In case you were wondering, my name is Lauren Azania Christophene Claudine Aymer-Jeffrey. It is a long name I know, but my parents gave the last names of our godparents to my siblings and me. Talking of siblings, I have three - Reva who is 12 years of age, Jordan who is 9 years of age and Eboni who is 4 years of age. I am 15 years of age. I was born on the 16th day of the 8th month 1990 at Greenwich Hospital - the 1 and only - hospital for the stars! 'Infamous' stars like me all go to Albany Secondary School in Enfield, where, I am in form 11N. My form tutor - Mr Taylor, has been my form tutor for 4 years in a row which is very fortunate for me as this means that he knows that although I am a good, intelligent pupil, I am late most of the time - he doesn't get any surprises when I am late! Currently at school, I am in the school council, I am a school prefect and I am on the yearbook committee. as I am in my last year of school, I am helping to plan my year's 'leaving prom' and the fundraising for it, and so I feel I have some authority in the school. ...read more.

My dad is just like my mum - like a male version. I'm also just like my dad. Both of them have very good singing voices and they have made a record together before. My dad is currently in a group called 'Shades Of One'. The group consists of my dad, two of my godfathers and my uncle. They sing all kinds of music - mainly songs in Acapella, and they sound marvellous together. My Nan (my mum's mum) and Gran (my dad's mum) are both in their church choir and both have good voices as well, so I guess it must run in the family. Me, my brother and my sister have quite good voices as well. I am a strong believing Christian and I go to Hornsey Moravian Church on Priory Road, which is literally around the corner from Alexandra Palace (an ice-skating rink). As we are a Moravian Church, we sing lively songs to celebrate Jesus' life. Moravian Churches hold many annual events like gospel competitions and tremendous summer camps, and every day of every year is spent raising money. Other than going to Church, I enjoy acting - I have been in several plays and performance and I am about to join an acting school to help me improve my acting. I love to sing most of all, I have been in many choirs and am in one at the moment, and I have had solos in shows like 'Annie the Musical' - mostly performing at Millfield Theatre in Edmonton, North London. ...read more.

Conclusion

It's quite ironic though, as I am one of the skinniest people in year 11 (wearing UK sizes 6/8) and I am one of the people who eat the most! I don't take a fancy to having to play with very small children - especially when I am being told to do so because I'm the oldest. Sometimes, though, I do not mind it because as I am the oldest child in my family, I generally have no-one to hang around with much anyway - I am beginning to enjoy solitaire life! I hope that in the future, I earn just enough money to live on necessities and certain luxuries. My ambition is to become a singer - that is my lifetime ambition, but whatever job I decide to do, I hope that it is not boring. In my SATs, I got a Level 6 for the Science Exam and a Level 7 for the English and Math Exams. I hope to achieve a Level B or higher in all of my GCSEs - which will be quite hard, as I have picked a lot of hard subjects. In life, I hope to become a singer, and my minor ambitions are to live in my own property by the time I'm twenty years old, be able to do the splits by the time I leave Secondary School, to be able to do front and back flips by the time I leave ALL education, attend a college in Spain, and attend University in either America or England. ...read more.
