  • 1. PERSONAL STATEMENT/AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH My name is Nelson Damachi and I am 16 years old, and I was born November, 5 1993. I was born in Lagos, Nigeria to parents Lillian Ekwosi and Nicholas Damachi. I am involved in several activities in and out of school. For example I am an avid volunteer at Good Luck Community Center, assisting with areas they require help in for I love to give back to the community. I have been a member of the Parkdale Track and Field and Cross Country Team and I am also Army JROTC program. I have received such awards Most Improved on the Cross Country and the Academic Award for the Outdoor Track Season. This award is given to the athlete with the highest GPA on the team. I have also made the Honor Roll on numerous occasions, and have gotten the Perfect Attendance Award, which I believe to be a prestigious award. My interest include running, and I hope to compete in college, I also like studying so I could maintain my grades. For leisure I enjoy going to the movies and spending spare times with friends and using the computer. I hope to pursue a future in Computer Science as it is one of my hobbies and as the world is becoming more and more technological, everything seems to depend on computers nowadays. I feel this would be a lucrative profession and one I would enjoy because for one, I love of computers, and I plan on pursing this career by enrolling and attending the University of Maryland. At church I am a alter servant and attempt to go down there during major holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter to help decorate the church. A significant event in my life occurred approximately 7 years ago when I put my finger in a doorway and a friend of mine unknowingly slammed the door severing my finger. It had to be stitched back, but unfortunately it never stayed and fell off. Although this class has nothing to do with the career I plan to pursue, I am fascinated by the body and its functions and that is why I made the decision to take this classs.
