  1. 1. Autobiography<br />Gengis A Pérez<br />
  2. 2. Gengis A. Pérez<br /> I was born in Mayaguez on May 18 1981,<br />but I was raised in Aguadilla. I lived near<br />the beach at “EL HIGUEY”, is a beautiful<br />place. To be exact, I lived three minutes<br />from the beach. I have a big brother and<br />his name is Antonio. Hector and Amelia are<br />Parents.<br />
  3. 3. When I was five years old I started taking<br />JUDO classes. I got in the puertorican team twice<br />to compete in the United States in the Junior<br />Nationals. At this same age my father got me into<br />the Cub Scouts. Those were pretty good years for<br />me. At the age of fifteen I started surfing near <br />home in some very good beaches, like: <br />Wilderness, Bridges, Mix, Pressure Point, Jobos, <br />Secret Spot, Golondrinas, Shore Island. But since I <br />was a local to Bridges beach I spent most of the time<br /> there.<br />
  4. 4. I was close to drown in twice. But I like this <br />sport very much. But even though is an extreme<br />sport I had wonderful experiences, for example at <br />Wilderness beach we saw twice a Carey (sea<br /> turtle) swimming inside a wave and we saw it <br />later swimming right by us. And that was <br />awesome. I’m still practicing this sport today but <br />not as much as I want to. The best thing about <br />this is that my parents supported my even when<br />they knew it was kind of dangerous sport. Thanks to <br />that I got to see wonderful stuff.<br />
  5. 5. I was a straight A student. I went to Eladio <br />J. Vega elementary school. I won the scientific fair<br />when I was on sixth grade. My project was on <br />fertile soils and I won. But as a young boy I did <br />bad things, I was always in the principal office. <br />But I had good grades and that kind of solved<br />much of my problems. Then I went to Dr Agustin <br />Stahl on junior high an I also had good grades<br />and kind of did have my first girlfriend. But I have<br />to admit that nothing really interesting happened.<br />
  6. 6. Then I went to Jose de Diego High school. Here I <br />graduated with honors and by the time I was <br />finishing High school I was an Eagle scout and<br />this to was a great achivement. To earn the Eagle <br />Scout rank you have to do community service in <br />your home town. My proyect was to clean and <br />paint the “placita de la Via” this is down town<br />Aguadilla. By this time I was taking Tae Kwon Do <br />classes. After that I started studying at Cora <br />University to be a teacher as a second language. <br />While I was studying in Cora some wonderful <br />happened in my life, I went to church regularly and my <br />life was new.<br />
  7. 7. I found a job at a school in Aguada helping a<br />teacher and for the time I worked there I had to<br />quit the University because I was helping my <br />Pastor doing some works at our Church. Then I <br />got married and after two years of marriage we had<br />A daughter named Ashley. Now I felt the<br />obligation to find a more steady job for my family.<br />Now I work at Choice Cable In the Voice solutions<br />Department (solving telephony problems). I<br />started studying In Cora again because I want a<br /> better future for my daughter.<br />
