Koro's Dream

The story is about, Koro and his dream.  The beginning of the story tells us about Koro, and how he was heading back to the East Coast. Koro had rang his son to tell him about the news, and when he was told, the son was anxious on the phone when he heard the shocking news. Koro says that its about time that things go back to the way they were.

Malala Stands Tall

Over a week ago a girl named Malala was shot in the head, by the Taliban, for her role in campaigning for education for girls in her country. Though this disastrous shot went through the 15 year old girls head she managed to survive. Due to the damage caused to the head, her parents say, it was a miracle for their daughter to survive a dangerous gunshot.

Nearly a week after the gunshot, Malala was taken to the United Kingdom (UK) hospital and stayed there recovering from her injury. Even though she got shot in the head, where the brain is, she is still strong while in recovery. Out of all girls in Pakistan that wanted to be educated but couldn’t because of the Taliban, Malala was the bravest of them all.

Malala still stands tall even though she is injured.

Manaiakalani Film Festival


Practice, practice and more practice was all I could say as Hosannah  and I were both chosen to present for our class at the Manaiakalani Film Festival 2012.  It was my first time ever to be presenting in front of thousands of people (not all at once of course), so I was determined to nail my lines.

After all the practice, it was time to present. At times, I would shiver because I was afraid that I would muck up.........................not only that, but I had stage fright. As I looked towards the stage, presenters were doing their things, while I was thinking of how things would be.

After all this time, it was our turn to present. Walking up onto the stage,  I looked towards the audience, but guess what..................................well, I couldn’t see anyone because of the light. The spotlight shone upon Hosannah and I so all we could see was PITCH BLACK.

Finally, after all the hard work, we managed to kick in. We finished presenting in front of thousands of people, so all we had to do was sit back, relax and enjoy all of the shows. It was an amazing experience for both of us.
