About Phoenix Do

Hello! My name is Phoenix Do and I am currently 14. I'm in the 9th grade at North Hagerstown High School where I'm in the International Baccalaureate Program. I love sports and especially karate. The Steelers are my favorite football team. I'm an only child, it does include its ups and downs though. I'm very active in my community joining and participating in any club or competition possible. My goal in life is to be a surgeon general, specifically a hematologist. I've been blogging since I was an 8th grader at E. Russell Hicks and am now a contributing editor at TeensHaveChoices.org.
