Nairobi Shabazz

Nairobi Shabazz

My favorite things to do are playing with my sisters, eating, and watching TV. At camp I enjoy swimming, playing tag, and playing games. At home I like to swim, play Roblox, and watch TV. When I get older I want to be a lawyer because I like to talk and give speeches and tell people what to do. – July 2019
