I am an 11-year-old girl who turned 12 on December 29th. I live in a household of seven people: my mom, sister, four brothers, and myself. One of my little brothers suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy, which causes him to have seizures and not be able to walk, talk, or sit up. He and my mom inspire me to write. I love to invent helpful things for life, like a box that helps declutter, phone cases, and a pencil holder. I like to read fiction, mystery, fantasy, and mythical books.
