Introducing Isabel Just!

Hi, my name is Isabel. I am Val and John's nine year old granddaughter. I love learning computer programming, math, science, personal finance, and Chinese. The things I love to do are gardening, exercise, play games, and learn.


I have a big garden in my backyard and me and my family planted lots of plants. The plants we planted were raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, tomatoes, melons, peppers and brussel sprouts.


My mom is Chinese and my dad is American.


My favorite food is noodles in soup.     


Oh, and Muhammad Ali said float like a butterfly sting like a bee.

Interviewing Nana
