The Global Educator, by Julie Lindsay

Hi, my name is Justin, and I am a student at Allied Academy of Health and Sciences.

I enjoy playing classical piano, as I love music.  It is always great to be able to make music and take on the challenge of learning a new, difficult piece.  Since I do not know how to play many sports, I also like running, since it is a great workout.  Running improves my health, as well as training my competitiveness.  Also, I enjoy doing a Chinese sport called diabolo.  It is essentially a large yo-yo that the user has to spin on a string attached to two sticks.  I enjoy it not only because it is a great exercise, but also because it is a challenge to learn new tricks.

Unlike most people, I do not really care about food.  I simply eat what is served to me.  However, I would say my favorite foods are Chinese food, Italian food, and bread.



My favorite sports are track and baseball.  I participate in a track team for my school.  In my opinion, running is a great, all-around sport.  Also, even though I do not really play baseball, I enjoy baseball because it is exciting and simply a great sport.

I have several favorite movies, but I would have to say my favorite is Zombieland.  It is well acted, action packed, funny, and simply well made.  I also like the movies The Dark Knight, 127 Hours, Pineapple Express, and The Hangover.  All of my favorite movies are smart, well acted, and well developed.  

I listen to all genres of music.  My parents are classical pianists, so I listen to classical a lot.  However, on my own time, I mainly listen to rock, hard rock, and metal.  I will also listen to alternative music.  I do not listen to pop.  My favorite bands are Linkin Park, Slipknot, and The Black Keys.  Linkin Park and Slipknot are, even though very hardcore, very musical instrumentally and very meaningful lyrics-wise.  The Black Keys are a blues rock band that make short, simple, but catchy songs with amazing guitar riffs.  I also like the bands Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Muse, and Metallica. My favorite songs are "Your Touch" by The Black Keys, "Afterlife" by Avenged Sevenfold, "Crawling" by Linkin Park, "Salute Your Solution" by The Raconteurs, and "Psychosocial" by Slipknot.

Unlike most people, my hands are abnormally large, considering my body size.  My fingers can do unusual things, too, such as being able to lock and then shoot out very fast. Some of my fingers are also double jointed.  Also, my fingers are faster than everyone else's.  I guess it is because me and my family are all pianists.
