May Kong LeePalao
My full name is May Kong Christine LeePalao. It's a mouthful-it's got 24 letters! It's quite a hassle when the school system mistakes my first name as "May" and my middle name as "Kong Christine". I end up with the name "May LeePalao". Who has a middle name "Kong Christine"?!?! My name is May Kong, but I have to tell new teachers every year the same thing. It's hard enough when you have two other sisters with the names of May Ky and May Ka; and the school system does the same thing to their names.
I have eight brothers and sisters (nine including me). I am 17 years old and was born the year of the Ox. I am from a small village by the name of Cacao in the country French Guiana. Not a lot of people know about this country, but it is directly above Brazil. I am Hmong and when I tell people I was born in French Guiana, they look surprised and exclaim, "Really?"
I love to read-romance, thriller, adventure-anything really. I read
for fun, I read for school, I read when I'm bored. I love to write as
well. I write stories, journals, notes, e-mails, letters-you name it.
I've been writing short stories since I was a little kid.
I am a pretty patient and understanding person. I don't lose my temper
often and usually think before I act. When I do lose my temper, it's
usually with good reason, but the steam blows off shortly. I'm not one
to hold a grudge.
I like children and have a lot of experience with babysitting. I am
probably going to end up at the U of M-Twin Cities. I want to go to
grad school and study medicine. Maybe I'll become a pediatrician, who
knows? Right now, all I want to concentrate on is school and sports
and the present.
