A few weeks ago, the Year 7 & 8 Extension class were given a rubric and assigned to gather information about one person in particular, draw your best graphics and make an independent movie about that same person. We were lucky enough to choose 1 person from the Pacific Starmap 'Lighting the way for Pacific Artists', a star sports player or a celebrity who inspires you the most. I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to do Sia Figiel. She is a famous pacific women who writes poetries and is a publisher of novels as well. It wasn't the best movie I've made but it was good to watch.
I'm glad to say that I finished my project on Sia Figiel but I didn't do GREAT and I didn't do bad. During the time we had to complete these projects, I needed to tweet some things up but I did some things that were al right I guess. It was a good thing that I made progress in every session of Extension but I still think I could of managed my time more along with some focus. If we get given another task to complete and I still have a chance to be a member of this class, I will definitely do my best to complete it and put all my effort in it.
I have to admit in the beginning, I thought this was for nothing but after a few days I got the hang of it. Sia Figiel was fun to learn about and she was a women that I had been inspired by. She showed a heap of confidence and was keen to follow her dreams even though she had no support other than her kids and close friends. I learned even though your still learning about your dream and how much work you need to put in it, don't give up because you never know what's going to happen!
