Josetta Adams

I was born in Brooklyn, NY and I'm 16-years-old. I'm interested in writing poetry and music, listening to music and staring up at my ceiling (or the clouds or stars) because I can never find anything to do. I really think I want to be a veterinarian because I love a challenge (since animals can't talk) and because I like animals.

I live in East Flatbush, a "black neighborhood" and it's bad. There's almost always a fight or argument outside and you see stray animals on almost every block.

I hate attention and despise pity. I used to have 8 cats in my house (kittens). I have 4 siblings and a lot of friends and still feel like the loneliest person on Earth! (I was always used to having the comfort of a pet since I was younger.)
