My name is Fitzhugh…Fitzhugh Contreras. Weird name right? I know. My mom has a penchant for all things British and unfortunately for me my name was the ode to her obsession. Never mind that I have to live with the mockery of friends who think it funny to address me as “Old Chap” and or greet me with a “Cheerio” while attempting to say it with a decidedly English inflection. Never gets old for them. Man, how I wish sometimes that my name was Pedro or Esteban or even Joe… anything other than Fitzhugh. But alas, that is my name so feel free to call me by my nickname, Fitz.
I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself. I’m 17 years old and I live on the Upper West Side of New York City. I’m currently a senior at Edward I. Koch High in the West Village. I’m 5’9”, my hair is light brown and wavy and I tend to wear it a kind of long. I’m Hispanic but no one ever believes me at first glance because I’m so light skinned, unlike the rest of my tawny skinned Latino looking family. Oh and I weigh about 135 pounds soaking wet. Am I skinny? Yeah, true dat. You may be thinking I’m a weakling and it’s true that I may not be able to lift heavy weights but I’m strong in other ways, as in mentally and intellectually. I’ve even been told I have a high I.Q. Although I’ve never measured it myself, without boasting I’d say that’s about right. I’ve always been a straight A student and learning comes easy to me. Math is my favorite subject, video games are my obsession and photography is my passion. But that’s neither here nor there. This story is not about me.
