My name is Noe Flores. I am a 6th grade honors student and live in Fort Worth, Texas. I enjoy learning and reading and was the runner up for my school Spelling Bee in 3rd grade. I am currently in band and play percussion. My favorite subject in school is science because it’s interesting and at my STEM school we get hands-on learning. I like playing video games and hope to one day become an animator and create my own video game.
I am very excited and grateful to have been selected as one of the winners. Thank you for this amazing opportunity and the chance to visit Washington D.C. and meet my fellow Constituting America contest winners.
