Who is Lubens?


My name is Lubens. I am a freshman at G. Holmes Braddock Sr. High. and I am in UniTY 1, a program at the Miami Museum Of Science. In UniTY 1, we learn how to make web pages using many amazing types of computer programs. As you can see, my web page is about Viruses. Viruses can cause diseases, however, at the same time scientists have also found a way to use them to their advantage. For instance, scientists have learned that by infecting humans with a weakened microbe that when that particular virus attempts to infect the person's immune system, the body will already have built up a supply of antibodies in order to defend itself.

I like reading autobiographies and biographies. I also enjoy listening to music. My favorite type of music is R&B and rap. The Notorious B.I.G. is one of my favorite artists and Life After Death and Ready to Die are my favorite albums.

I would like to thank the Miami Museum Of Science for letting me become a member of the YouthA.L.I.V.E. program. It feels almost like I have a second family. I would also like to thank James and Bensin for guiding me on my web page and teaching me about the many fun computer programs and applications. I need to thank Addison-Wesley Biology Company for supplying me with an abundance of information for my research. I would like to give thanks to all my friends and family, including my friends: Mildred, Monique, Gina, James, and Patrick. Thanks for being my friends for so many years and for many years to come. I especially want to give thanks to the "Man Up Stairs" for looking over me and my family. Please forgive me if I forgot to thank anyone, I have a lot on my mind.
