What do your parents do for work?

My mother works at the National Polytechnic Museum.

In my free time, I go to a workshop, where we learn to sing, act and dance.

I’d like to be a pediatrician, because I love children. My favorite subjects in school are chemistry and biology. And you need them if you want to become a doctor.

What are you afraid of?

I’m afraid of being away from my mother. I’m closer to her than anyone else — and I love her very much.

The biggest problem is environmental pollution. And bad air.
