My name is Robyn I am a student at Downers Grove North
High School. I have lived in Downers Grove for about ten years. Before
moving to Downers Grove I lived in Oak Brook. My family moved because the
town wanted to build a office building. After five years they decided to
build strip mall and a bank. I have an older brother named Jim; he
is a very big trouble maker. I have a very large family; I have six
aunts, five uncles.
