Hello! My name is Anjeli and I am an eighth grader from Chicago. I currently attend Lane Tech High School’s Academic Center where I play sports that include basketball, volleyball, and soccer. My favorite subjects are math, science, and computer science, but I also enjoy playing the piano, guitar, and ukelele on my own time. I have been a Girl Scout for almost 9 years and other extracurriculars that I enjoy participating in are Math Team and Robotics.
