Hiya! My name is Keyshawn D. Browne. I may seem quiet at first but in actuality I love to explore, I come from a Caribbean/West Indian background and I love to explore and learn about new things. I especially love technology such as those surrounding video games, phones, and computers, I travel every summer with my family, so far I've been to many different islands of the Caribbean, Canada, across the United States, and other countries. I love Caribbean music such as, reggae, soca, and dancehall. Writing is also a big part of my life I love to write poems, short stories, and monologues. I am kind, funny, and a listener and I always try my best to work well with others. I hope this provided a little more insight into who I am. See ya' later!
