QAIS Super Student Profile of the Week – Victoria, Grade 9
What is your favorite book and why?
One of my favorite books is called “Gone With the Wind.” It is a historical novel, which focuses on the time period of the American Civil War and the Reconstruction Era. The main characters of the story are Scarlett and Rhett Butler. Scarlett is a rich and young lady before the war started, who had a perfect life. After the war started, Scarlett family fell into poverty. In the end, Scarlett used her intelligence and courage to achieve the romance and social level she had always wanted. The book discusses love, romance, racial discrimination towards blacks, Scarlett’s independence and optimistic spirit and the effect the war had on the poor and the rich. It is a meaningful book and reading it helps the reader to have a better understanding of the concepts of war and society.
What future do you envision for yourself in 20 years?
In 20 years, I will be 34 years old. I’m hoping to achieve a simple life which is filled with happiness and love. I am planning to have a career I can enjoy and try my best at; having friends to comfort me and
families that will support me at anytime I need. I’m planning to go forward with my arts or hobbies, for example reading, piano and ballet. Arts are the inspiration in my life, it is a part of me because they can always make me happy. In the mean time, I will be traveling the world. Going to places I am curious about; Places like the north pole, Egypt, Africa or Tibet….. Life is a journey and everyday has a new definition!
