Miguel "Miggy" Ayala

My name is Miguel Ayala, but I also respond to the name of Michael. I'm 21 years old. I was born two months prematurely, yet I am very intelligent and I am a twin! I once lived with my mom and dad, and then due to various circumstances, I entered foster care from age three to 21 years old. While in care, I wrote for Represent Magazine. I have lived in The Bronx my whole life. I want to be a social worker. I am also a poet and songwriter, and have been writing for magazines for kids in foster care for the past few years. At the moment I am working on getting my GED. I like to write poetic words.

Interesting Fact: I am a fraternal twin, meaning we are not supposed to look alike, but if you looked at my brother and I, you would swear we are identical
