My name is Felicia Campbell. I'm fourteen years old. I blessed this earth when I was born on May 3, 1995 at 1:04 AM from my beautiful mother, Lola Campbell. I was born and raised in New York. I live in the Bronx, but I'm in love with the city. I love to read, write, dance, and try new things. My two wonderful parents are Jamaican. I recently graduated from M.S. 180, and now I'm looking forward to attending Beacon High School in Manhattan in the fall. I graduated with honors, and many awards for my great accomplishments. (I was also Prom Queen! Yay Me!!) After graduating Beacon High School, I look forward to going to Princeton, Yale or Penn State University to major in Medicine. I want to be a doctor when I grow up and find a cure for HIV/AIDS, and save the lives of the millions of people diagnosed with this virus. My favorite subjects are english, science and math. I'm really outspoken, creative, hyper, funny, hardworking, and honest. I can be silly and humorous at times, but I know when to stop and get to work. I'm in love with the colors pink, yellow and red! I listen to mostly reggae music, and watch mostly scary movies. Dance, step, writing, debate, and drama are my favorite hobbies.
This summer I participated in the Bronx Institute Gear-Up program at Fordham University which offered me a wide range of opportunities and experiences. I had the chance to go many places that I haven't been to before and share what I learned with others. My first trip was to the Bronx Zoo, where I got a chance to win prizes and learn about tobacco and how destructive it is to the human race. I also had the opportunity to tour the entire Fordham University and sit down and learn math and reading everyday in a college classroom, and live like a college student. I participated in debates where the other students and I voiced our opinions on various topics. Then, we took college education lessons, where we practiced filling out financial aid applications and setting up goals and future plans. I also took a Science Photography class where we had the chance to take photos and put them all together to create an overview of basically everything we did over the course of the summer at Gear-up. My second trip was a tour of Columbia University where I had the opportunity to learn about the college, what it's like, and how the college admission process works. My third trip was to the World Finance Building where I met many college interns from colleges across the United States. I interviewed many of them about their colleges and what it's like there. When we weren't inside a college classroom learning something new, we were either on trips or somewhere on campus learning more and more about high school and college. I really enjoyed the program and how much it offered. I look forward to participating in it again next year. The day after my courses ended at Fordham University, I received a call from SYEP, asking if I would still like to work at CampInteractive. (I thought it was too late to work with SYEP, but it wasn't.) I told them yes, I would love to, and to my surprise, I got started the next morning. Now, I'm a proud student and employee at CampInteractive.
