Pelham Examiner

Sandra Chalissery, Staff Reporter

Hello! My name is Sandra Chalissery. I am in seventh grade. I like music, art, science and math. I am one of those cases where I need to find a good book to like reading. My sister and I have an art sale with everything we have painted that year during the summer. We didn't do it last year, though, because of Covid-19, but we will do it this year. I know how to code apps, games and websites. I play the piano and the violin, but I prefer the piano. I recently learned tax and tips in math, and now the whole world makes sense. Science is great because when you understand science, you know how the world works. Anyway, that was a little about me, and what I like.
