Essay: Being A Friend Means
Being a friend to someone means sharing, caring, playing and being there for each other. I have lots of friends that I talk and play with. We play with each other at home or sometimes at school. At times we might disagree, sometimes fight or quarrel but in the end we are still friends. My friends mean a lot to me, because they bring joy to my life. Some of my friends live in the same community as I do and some do not. They can get me out of trouble or even help me. My friends are like a flower that need help to grow and in the end they will beautify the world.

In the future, if God wills, I would like to become a Teacher. Before I leave high school I plan to get all my C.A.P.E.s and CXCs in one. After I graduate from high school, I plan to go to University, further my studies and graduate with my Bachelor's and Master's. The reason I want to become a teacher is because I want young people to become better and better and take their work more seriously. The persons who motivate me to become a teacher are: Miss Salmon (my Grade 6 teacher), my mom and my sister. They are always there for me.

Essay: A Song That Has Influenced Me
A song that has influenced me is “Read All About It” by Emili Sande. I believe the reason I was influenced by this particular song is the amount of truth and message it gives to me and others in many verses of the song. For example, in verse one, the first and second line states: “You’ve got the words to change a nation but you are biting your tongue.” This line influenced me to be the voice of others because persons have chances to make changes but they are afraid to do so.
I was mainly influenced by the message of the song and to me that message is that it is time to make a change and the change that people want to see. Failure is not a choice or option; it is only a proof of doing something wrong or not giving it your all.
Everyone has a fear of failing but if no one ever tries, how will others be motivated to try as well? If I can make a change then so can others. I challenge myself to be exactly that and when I do they will read all about it.
