Matthew Pomales

Hello there, as you may have guessed by the title my name is Matthew Pomales, I was born and raised in New York city. I was born there on May 10, 2002, where I grew up in Manhattan and stayed with my mother, siblings, and my grandparents. After awhile I decided to move to Orlando, FL with my father because I wanted to try different things and go to different places in the world. While in Florida I attended three different middle schools Lake Nona, Walker, and Memorial. This is mostly due to the fact that I move almost every year so I don't stay in one place too long.

One of the main reasons I choose to join the newspaper staff was because I enjoy to read and write, this love of reading and writing came to me very recently due to a book series I am currently reading. Another one of my hobbies besides reading and writing is drawing, something I enjoy very much which is something my father introduced me to when I was a child. I use to enjoy video games but that started to dwindle down over time due to fatigue which was around the same time I picked up reading and writing. A couple of places I've been to are New York, Puerto Rico, Boston, and Florida two of these places blend in together like New York and Boston because they are so similar.
