Dear Pen Pal,
My name is Adriana Medina Sciacca. My favorite food is empanadas, but I also like ravioli. I am 13 years old. I live in Argentina, on my father’s orange-farm outside of San Salvador de Jujuy. It’s always hot here- is it like that where you live? My father is Arturo Medina. The farm used to belong to my grandpa, now it belongs to him. My mom is Gioia Sciacca, she’s pretty nice. I also have an aunt and two uncles. My uncles go to mass with us on Sundays. My mom says I have more aunts and uncles in Sicily, in Italy. I’ve never met them, though. I think it would be cool to meet them. I think some of them might have kids who are my cousins, which would be cool because I don’t have any cousins here. I have a little brother named Pedro, but he just bothers everyone. School is okay. Classes are okay. I like math. I have two friends at school, Laura and Marcela, they’re pretty funny. There’s Julia too, I guess she’s kind of my friend. I like to draw and write poems in my free time, maybe next time I can send you a poem I wrote. Do you like to do any of those things? Do you like empanadas?
