Do you ever wonder where your name came from and what it means? For Paint Branch junior Shanhi Chang the answer is a little bit of both yes and no. ¨I don't know honestly, ” says Shanhi, “but my grandfather from my Dad's side is half Korean and half Jamaican.” This, according to Shanhi, is why someone who considers himself strictly Jamaican has a Korean last name.

Every kid has interests and hobbies as they grow up to see what they like. These can be very different experiences depending on what a kid is into. Some might be different from others. For example, Some play sports while others play video games. Some draw or play an instrument while others read books. Shanhi’s hobby has always been playing sports for fun outside of school. When he was younger he played AAU basketball and now he plays basketball for fun with his friends.

As kids in this modern generation, there is almost no way to avoid playing video games. Some own an Xbox or Playstation or maybe they play on a PC/Switch. No matter what you use, a topic that is constantly debated is about which console is better: Xbox or Playstation. Shanhi owns an Xbox and says that he plays ``NBA 2k22. I play with my friends and we try to win as many games as possible.¨

As they grow up, kids often have a dream job. No matter how long or how much they get paid, they want to do something that they adore. For Shanhi that job is to be a real estate agent. According to Shanhi, ¨I have always liked discovering houses in different states and [would like to] help people find what is in their best interest when it comes to housing.”
