My name is Christian Harold Concepcion, I was born on November 24 2002, in the Philippines. I've been in four schools over the years, one in the Philippines and three here in Canada. The schools I attended to were St. Angelican School, which is in the Philippines, St. John Fisher, St. Jean de Brebeuf, and St. Thomas Aquinas high school.

My hobbies include playing basketball with friends or by myself, watching the NBA (the professional basketball league in America), working out, and playing video games.
