All About Me

BRIEF BIO

My name is Jada Murphy,I was born on April 1st 1997. I am currently a senior at Childersburg high. Class of 2015.My journey at CHS has been quite an adventure and now it is slowly coming to an end. I'm eager to announce that I will be attending Southern Union in the fall of 2015. I'm planning to major in Sociology. You'll find out more about me as you read along on my website.

HIGH SCHOOL YEARS

I went to B.B.Comer Memorial High school all the way up to my sophomore year and then i transferred to Childersburg High school. I was skeptical about the move at first but after attending this school im glad to be apart of Childersburg high. I've always had A/B honor roll , and maintained perfect attendance for the most part.

EXTRA CURRICULAR

Throughout my high-school year I've been in both Talent Search and FCCLA . I enjoy participating in the many activities outside of school. The summer of my senior year I got my first job at Bojangles in Chelsea. I also attend Jesus Saves Church in Odena, Alabama.

SENIOR QUOTE

"Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying."

- I chose this quote because i know that every choice that you make is left up to you, so you should make the best choice. You have to have faith and believe in yourself. I always tell myself, "I know that I can make it".

Writing Sample from Frankenstein

Dear Reader,


I am writing to tell you about my adventurous book entitled Frankenstein. I wrote the book as part of a contest between me and my friends. I got the idea from a dream I had a few nights before. The theme of this novel centers around the idea of responsibility. It took me a year to write the book, but I really enjoyed writing it.


We were sitting beside the campfire, and we wanted to see who could write the scariest story. Of course I was up for the challenge! My friends and I always wrote scary stories, but this time I turned mine into a actual book. My friends were fascinated, because I usually didn't win the contests that we had. I had to show them otherwise, since they were some of the most famous writers from the Romantic Period of literature.


First, I was undecided about what to write about. I couldn't concentrate, but after a little bit of brainstorming I got a grip and began to just write. I thought about a dream I had had a few nights before. I saw a vision of a dead body coming back to life. I knew right then I had the perfect idea, and that I would win the contest.


The theme of this novel centers around the idea of responsibility. As you know, Victor wasn't responsible at all. He created a monster that killed people, and he really couldn't control it. Victor set out to control nature and instead became a victim of it. The book not only teaches responsibility, but it also teaches the truth behind the element of human life.


I wrote the book Frankenstein for entertainment purposes at first. My main goal was simply to write a winning ghost story and impress my friends. Over the years, this book has turned out to be a warning to those who are too obsessed with a passion or to those who abuse nature’s power. Frankenstein came out to be a remarkable story, and I’m proud that my novel is still being read so many years later.




Sincerely,

Mary Shelley

Healthy Eating







Do you think healthy eating should be a right, responsibility, or a privilege? I personally believe that healthy eating is your responsibility but you also have a right to be healthy. I think that everyone should have a right and a responsibility to healthy eating.


Eating right is important to staying at a healthy weight and keeping and energy balance. The balance between the calories you eat and drink and the calories you burn through the body are different. Healthy food should be available to everyone and less expensive. Some people can't afford to eat healthy. A lot of people don't have access to healthy food.


Healthy eating should be a responsibility and one of your main concerns. If you want to stay in shape, its best that you eat right and stay fit. You are responsible for what you eat. healthy eating should be important to you. Make healthy decisions!


Eating healthy should be a right because everybody should have the right to eat healthy food. You are responsible to ask the government for assistance if you need food stamps. Schools provide healthy lunches for kids but its their choice if they eat it or not. Homeless shelters prepare healthy meals for homeless people as well.


Healthy eating is an right and a responsibility. You have an right to healthy eating but its also your responsibility. Healthy food is not cheap at all! Many people don't have the money to buy healthy food . However eating right is important to living a healthy lifestyle. You are responsible for what foods you consume, make good decisions!
