Hi, I'm Alex! I'm 12 years old and in the 5th grade. I'm taller than my mom now and my feet are bigger than hers. I'm wearing size 8.5 (men's) shoes and size 14/16 or youth large in clothes.

This year in homeschool, we are studying early American history and introductory physics. I really like history, but I'm not so into math. My mom is teaching me how to play the piano. I like to play baseball, and I've played in the Quito Youth Baseball League for several years. This fall, I'll be old enough to play Little League.

I like to read a lot. Some of my favorite books are the Animorphs series, the Percy Jackson and Harry Potter books, and the Chronicles of Narnia. I'm currently trying to work my way through the Lord of the Rings.

I like playing video games and board games with my brothers and my Dad. One of our favorite games is Dominion. I also love Legos and anything "Star Wars."

When I grow up, I want to be an inventor.

I would love to have a pen-pal in the U.S.!
