Hello,

I am Aneesha Manocha. I am 10 years old. I am a 5th grader at Rashkis Elementary School.

My favorite hobbies are bicycling, swimming, computer games, reading, jump-roping (Quicktime video), and doing Math problems & Learning Drills.

I used to play with Tamagotchi.   My sister Aninda Manocha is in high school. My parents, Ming C. Lin and Dinesh Manocha, are Computer Scientists at UNC Chapel Hill.

I like to travel. I have been to Disneyworld, France, Asheville, Monaco, Geneva, Genoa (Italy), Hong Kong, Macau, Universal Studios, Swiss resorts, Cyprus, Germany, Ireland, Portugal, Singapore, Japan, Vancouver, China, India, Hong Kong (again), Spain and Victoria. I like to dress up for weddings. I like to go to parties and halloween, dress up like a flower girl, eat junk food, like Barney and Dolphins and have birthday parties (at 4 years and 5 years). After jump roping for 4 years, I am now playing soccer and softball.

I also jump rope and won multiple gold medals in 2008 , & 2009 , National Competitions. Here is the Video (77MB) of the prize ceremony.

I am fond of running and have been a member of Girls on the run . I also participated in 5K races and won gold medals in my age category .

Here are some of my pictures.
