My name is Sydney Mosaheb and I am in Grade 7 at King's Town School. I am thirteen years old and live in Kingston with my parents and my younger sister. I really enjoy school and my favourite subjects are Math, Science, English and Art, and I am a high achiever. I also participate in all school sports such as basketball which is my favourite sport as well as volleyball, and track and field. I have a love for music; I sing in a renowned choir and play the alto saxophone. I have my junior lifeguarding certificate, and I have participated in Science fair for the past three years this year being my third, I really do enjoy it. I am planning to go to university further my studies in the Science field and have a career as a dentist or a General Practitioner. What I learned from my project was if you chemically treat your hair it will damage and alter the structure in many different ways.
