About Me
Hello! My name is Megan and I am a 5th grader at Brownstone Intermediate School in Portland, Connecticut. I live with my mom, dad, older brother and sister named Kevin and Mary and dog named Finley! I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I also like playing with my dog and playing soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. My leadership qualities include being very determined and also very dependable.  Additionally, I am very open minded, I always have a plan set, but I am willing to change it if you had any good suggestions or thoughts.
