My name is Talya Gamble, and I attend Bertie High School. I am interested in basketball and learning new things about the mind. I use to play basketball when I was younger but I stop playing to focus more on school. I enjoy reading new things about the mind everyday. I try to learn at least one thing about the mind before the day is over. I have always been interested in this since I was eight years old. I love to read fictional books such as Divergent, The Hunger Games, or Pretty Little Liars. They are all book series. But I love reading even though English isn’t my favorite subject in school. In the fall of 2017, I will probably attend North Carolina A&T University to major in Psychology.
