Deniqua Barnes

My name is Deniqua Ahjahnay Barnes, sometimes my family calls me Niq-Niq. On my mom's side, I'm the oldest of my sister, Serenity (7 y/o)  and my brother, Xamere (5 y/o). On my dad's side, I'm in the middle of my older sister, Diziya (17 y/o) and my little sister, Savannah (4 y/o). I'm a cool person, I just like to go with the flow and laugh. People always tell me I'm the funniest person they know, but I don't think I'm that funny.

Three things about me...


While other people were out enjoying their summer, I spent a lot of my time babysitting. I babysat my aunt's five kids, my cousin's son, and my little brother and sisters. Babysitting wasn't really a summer job for me because I always do it.  I really like babysitting and I'd say I'm good at it. Thanks to me having so many relatives, I've made well over $200 this summer.


Even though I currently don't play, basketball is my favorite sport. I can't wait for the NBA season to start. Kobe Bryant is my favorite player and the Los Angeles Lakers are my favorite team. For my birthday next month, I want tickets to a game in Cleveland. I always watch basketball and I went to a few summer league games in Erie.

Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump is my all-time favorite movie. I love how he makes the struggles in his life seem so simple. After all of the things he'd been through, he still continued to smile and love unconditionally. I'd love to make everything in life seem less complicated like him.  


One goal I have is to get good grades this year. I always do great in school, but last year I wasn't too great in math. I can achieve this goal by studying harder and taking things more serious. Another goal I have is to having some sort of activity. I can achieve this by joining some club at school or sport. My biggest goal is to be successful in life. This can be achieved by making great choices and learning from my mistakes.


Since I was little up until now I've always wanted to go to Disneyland. I'd like to go on the rides but I really want to see the Disney characters. Minnie and Mickey Mouse are my favorites. I want to take a huge group picture with my family and all of the characters in front of the castle. Plus, it's in California, the place I've always wanted to live.
