Fun with My Sister Jennifer

Hi my name is Darren De Braga. I am 20 years old. I graduated this year from my high school. I work at several different jobs through my high school work program. I am in Special Olympics. I play soccer, volleyball and bowling. I also bowl in my city league and have started playing flag football. I have a sister, her name is Jennifer, and she is the best. We do a lot of things together. The picture of us is in Miami. I like to travel to Canada to visit my cousins and if it is winter play in the snow. The Buddy Walk is a lot of fun, best part, seeing my friends. It is a great day.
