My name is Ricky Conti and I am an eighteen-year-old student at South Bergen Jointure Commission Middle/High School. I grew up and currently still live in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey. At a young age, I was diagnosed with Autism and then later diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of fifteen. My favorite activity to work on at school is cooking various foods in my Home Economics class. After I graduate from SBJC this year, I will be participating in a work-experience program. Here I hope to learn more about the food industry and the culinary arts. I aspire to become a cook in my future because I am such a foodie. Some of my hobbies outside of school include playing chess and video games.
