Downtown is fun, epic and joyful

I am nine years old and I go to Nelson Mandela Park Public School in Regent Park. I love being at this school. It’s so fun when I’m at school. I feel like I can learn anything. I like my teacher because she teaches us Math, Language, etc. My family is originally from Jamaica and moved to Canada when my brother and sister were 12. I was born here. I am always around Jamaican people at home, but at school I have friends from all over the world. When I think of downtown Toronto, I think of FUN, EPIC, JOY. I love being downtown. Sometimes the streets are really loud and busy. Downtown has lots of fun places like the CNE. Also, I like being downtown because there are many celebrations, such as Taste of the Danforth and Canada’s 150th birthday this year. Thank you for reading my I belong downtown story.
