Age 10 (2011)

Author, Out of My Mind (Book Review)

Martin writes, “My name is Juan Martin Velez, but I go by ‘Martin.’ I was born in Colombia, and moved to the US with my parents when I was eight months old. I also speak and read Spanish, and I’m learning Japanese. I am a 5th grader at Herod Elementary School in Houston, Texas. I like animals and have two dogs and a gecko, even though I think cats are better. I have a passion for saving the environment, and biology.”
