Hi, my name is Linda. I am 17 years old and I live in Brooklyn.
I like to sing and dance and be in the chat rooms. I am getting into a GED program, but don't know which one yet. (October 2000)
Interesting fact: I have a dog named Jodeci.
WNYC’s Radio Rookies program takes listeners inside the most intimate moments of teenager’s lives. Now, for the first time, we present a special, “Growing Up, Getting By”, an hour of stories and interviews about how teenagers find their way to adulthood.
My story is on something that happened to me when I was 14 years old: I tried to commit suicide and I landed in a mental institution.
