Hi, my name is Jenna I am in fifth grade at Webster Elementary School. I am 10 years old. My family includes my mom, dad, and my brother. I also have a lot of relatives. I have lots of best friends. I have also made a lot of friends by helping creating our website for Thinkquest. Here is what I love to do more than making friends, although you will see they go hand in hand: play sports. I divide my sports by season since I live in New Hampshire! In the winter I play basketball for my school team. I get to meet a lot of new kids playing basketball, too. Sometimes I ski at a mountain near my house and I ice skate. In the summer, I like to swim and play tennis. I belong to a local club with a swimming pool, tennis courts, a field to play in, and a mini basket ball court. Then I have the activities I do year round, which revolve around dance. At dance class, I take jazz class and tap
class. I enjoy both equally. I especially like the sound the tap shoes make on the wooden floor.
Besides sports, I also love music and instruments. I am in the fifth grade band at my school. I play the saxophone. Also, I play piano. I take private lessons for the piano. I'm also in love with music. My favorite genres of music are: rap, pop, hip hop, rock, and a little bit of country. Plus music and sports I am a Junior Girl Scout. I have been in Girl Scouts since I was in first grade. I love Girl Scouts because you get to learn, spend time with your friends, help other people, and do community service. My favorite thing about Girl Scouts is something we do yearly. We go to a local nursing home at Christmas time, and sing Christmas Carols. It's really nice to see the elders' faces light up. I have many goals for the future. I want to go to a great college and have a successful, well- paid job so I can take care of my family. A couple of colleges I have had in mind are: Dartmouth college in New Hampshire, BC ( Boston College) or UNH (University of New Hampshire). I am fascinated by animals, especially sea life. This is why I have an idea of what I want to be when I grow up. I really want to be a marine biologist, and I want to work at the Atlantis, Paradise Island in the Bahamas. I went to the Bahamas this past vacation and it was so beautiful! I want to work there because it is the biggest sea life aquarium in the USA. I also love animals and nature because I like watching the Planet Earth series. In case you are unfamiliar with this series here is how it was filmed, National Geographic went around the whole world filming things that no one has ever seen before. The first time I watched it, I cried because there were animals that were getting chased by bigger animals and eventually getting caught. Through watching this chase scene, I realized that I did not want the bigger animals to starve even if it meant the little animals would get eaten. It really hit home that there is the circle of life and all creatures must be cared for, including our honey bees! By watching the Planet Earth series I also realized how much I appreciate God for creating this beautiful planet. This is why we must take care of the Earth and all her creatures who inhabit the space with us.When Miss Beakey and Mrs, asked me to be on their Thinkquest team, of course I said yes! But, what I did not know was that it was a big commitment. It was a fun commitment, though! Sometimes, I got tired of working at home on Thinkquest because it took a lot of time and a lot of hard work! I worked on the writing and research and some of the graphics for the website. Plus I was on the forum we created a lot, checking in, double checking my writing that is why the forum was very helpful. It was another way besides our meetings we could communicate. ThinkQuest taught me a lot about my own abilities as a writer. It was a great experience working with the students from other countries too! I am proud of our work, I am proud of our team. We had some difficulties but we managed to work everything out and make an awesome site!
