I was born in Jacksonville, Florida. I am 17 years-old and I am interested in sports and TV. I spend most of my time at home or in the park playing basketball. My plan for the future is to help my mother with her entertainment and clothing company.
I live in Brooklyn, NY, with my uncle and his family. In my neighborhood I have a lot of friends and most of us play basketball. Sometimes we watch TV and have fun.
I spent 8 years in Guyana because my mother wanted me to live with her, but as I got older she wanted me to go back to America to live because she told me there are more opportunities here.

In many ways Valentine's Day is just as significant for people who are pining for love, as for those who have it. So, in honor of unrequited love, Radio Rookie Keith Harris shares a story about an all-consuming, exhilarating, and over-the-top high school crush.
Keith Harris had a secret when he started school in the U.S. for the first time: he didn't know how to read and write. After falling through the cracks of the educational system in Guyana, he decided to confide in his 9th grade English teacher at his Brooklyn high school. Now a successful and literate high school senior, Keith's story takes us into his journey to literacy.
