I love fashion and my most treasured accessories are my watches and my snickers. I love wearing snickers to every event because it is easy to flow with it.

The country I would love to go for holiday is Hawaii and the Bahamas. I would love to meet Jay-Z and the Queen of England. When I grow up I would love to be a footballer, basketball player or a swimmer. But it doesn’t walk out I’ll then be a Journalist. Like people say you shouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket. My dad wants me to be a banker or a doctor but I disagree.  Everyday I for training  at my coaches arena. I train for basketball, football and swimming. The one I am really good at is swimming. I have won two junior medals in Nigeria and one medal in all African Games. In Nigeria I won one gold and one bronze while in the African Games I won one gold. Next week I will be trying out for a an under 17 league team. They said we would be training at the stadium every Saturday and after church on Sunday. I am spiring to be the best among my peers. My sister chidinma feels I am good at swimming than any other sports while chibuzo thinks I will do well in both. My mum loves both sports but feels I should continue with swimming as a profession while football and basketball as a hobby. I was suppose to go for the Olympics swimming but I had injuries to deal with. I broke my knee while I was playing a basketball match against The Under Belles from Ghana. Anyway we won the match because I was the kid with the highest points. I had 42 points and 16 assists. There is still other swimming I am going to attend in America and Europe. My coach is Mrs Williams and she is the best ever. That’s me Chinedu James Ogbonna.
