Hi my name is Dajaz Defrand and I’m 11 years old. I was born in Colorado. I have one older sister who is 14 and a younger brother who is 8. My mom’s family comes from Texas and my dad’s family come from Haiti. Math is my favorite subject. I am learning to speak French so me and my grandma in Florida can speak in French to each other. This will be my first time running track and I’m excited. My dad was a track star in Ft. Lauderdale Florida and I think I have what it takes to be great like him. I also play basketball for the Denver Clovers girls basketball team. When I grow up I plan to go to college in Florida to be a veterinarian.
