I am a sixteen-year-old Carib-American who resides in Jamaica, Queens. Though I live there and was born on Long Island, my heart will always be in Brooklyn. I live in a beautiful house with my mom, dad, 2 brothers and 1 sister. My family is my pride and joy. Aside from other things, I love shopping (which is why my story is about fashion), styling hair, reading, writing rhymes, dancing and most importantly having fun. I strive for my best in whatever I do and I look only for the best from others. This is my first experience with Radio Rookies and so far it has been memorable. Thanks for taking the time to read my bio. Feel free to leave any comments.
Eighteen year-old Radio Rookie Shakima Swain - a first time voter - finds out what it means to be a Republican at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City.
Since she was little, Shakima has been dressing in style. She is proud of her fashion sense, but finds that as her family's finances have changed, it's been harder to keep up with the name brands she adores.
