The purpose of the Press Club at the Cook Arts Center is to provide youth in the Grandville Avenue neighborhood with the opportunity to find, develop and share their creative voices. Leydi is a member of the GAAH Press Club, and below is the autobiography she wrote from a third-person perspective.


Leydi is 10 years old and she is going to turn 11 on May 3, 2011.  Leydi likes to play with her sisters in her house or in the park. Leydi also likes to go to the mall and go shopping with her best friends.  She likes to play with her best friends in school but sometimes she gets mad.  Her favorite vegetables are watermelon, melon, salad, and more stuff.  Her favorite colors are purple, red, black, blue, white, and hot pink.  In school Leydi is so shy that you don’t even want to know her, but when she is outside she yells like a crazy girl. Leydi can speak both languages, Spanish and English. Leydi has a friend named Millie M. that told her that she as in a press club and Leydi told her that she wanted to be on it and then Leydi told Millie’s teacher to tell her mom and her mom said yes. Then Leydi is a member of the GAAH Press Club.
