Hi my name's shaleen and i am 14 years old. I study at eastbury comprehensive in barking. I am interested in going shopping and going out with my friends. I have a bubbly personality and am always laughing.. My five closest friends are Emma, Becky, Hannah, Hardeep and Kirsty. I was nominated to do this project by my science teacher, and decided to take part as it would be a great experience. I haven't got any hobbies however i love shopping and just having fun with my mates.


The picture is a portrait of me and for any of you who don't know me, IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE ME !!!!!!!!!!!

WhAt Is ThE PrOJeCt AboUt????

This project is based on asthma and vaccinations.We will be looking at ; what in our enviroment causes asthma?, how dustmites cause asthma?, we will also be mapping out asthma, whether we will ever get a vaccine for malaria, where do vaccines come from and what they are used for, and lastly we will be mappping out vaccination in our borough. We will be split into groups and work on one of these topics. I will be working on a project me and my friend thought of which was: "TB and why LEDC countries don't get vaccinated for it". This project will not only run for two weeks but for a whole year. This will involve doing work experience at " The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine" and coming to after school meetings.
