My name is Zara.  My grandparents moved to the U.S. when they were very young from Egypt. My parents and I were born in the United States.  My first language is English and I also speak Arabic.  My best friend is Alex and she lives next door.  I’m an actor.  As a member of the drama club, I have played leading roles and danced in the chorus in our school plays.  I also study with an acting coach so that I can one day be on television and Broadway.  I will study English in college and become a certified teacher as well.


Even though acting and rehearsals keep me busy, I make time to visit my family often because that is very important to me.
