My name is Justin. I am entering 12th grade at Radnor High School this year. I am excited to become a grand friend to you and hope we can write to each other often. I am currently at home with my sister and brother and parents because we are not allowed to leave during this time. So I am doing my schoolwork at home. I try and get outside to play basketball when it is a nice day. My parents really want me to get some time outside when I take a break from my schoolwork. Today was a bit rainy though so I stayed inside mostly.
How are you doing? Are you from the Philadelphia area? Do you have family nearby? What is your name? What do you like to do during the day?
During the school year, I play a lot of ice hockey. It is my favorite sport. I have been playing since I was 6 years old (almost 11 years now). Here is a picture of me and my family. I have two sisters, Alexa and Sophie.
This is a picture of us last year when we visited San Francisco for the first time. It was such a fun trip. I had never been to California before. It was beautiful. I will send you more pictures next time I write.
If you can email, feel free to respond to me:
Otherwise, I hope you can write back to me. My address is:
100 Sample Street
Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
I will definitely write again soon!
