"I want to be a lawyer when I get older because I want to help people stay out of jail, I don't like seeing people going to jail. I would also like to be a basketball player because it's my favorite sport. When I get into the 9th grade I'd like to go to the Renaissance High School. My mom told me it's a very high rated school."
