Let’s meet out latest Superstar – Annie!

Annie presented some interesting artifacts to us, including her oldest stuffy Bunny, her rosary beads from The Vatican, and her golden turtle shell musical wind instrument.

Annie is multi-talented too. We watched her perform two difficult piano pieces (while also dressed as a unicorn!) and she is also a talented artist. Check out three of her proudest pieces below.

Thanks Annie for being our Superstar this week!

  1. These are the cards that I made with my mother for my Chinese teachers as a sign of my appreciation for their hard work.  These are my teachers since I started at this Chinese School when I was 4 years old.
  2. I started to learn Japanese when I was 6 years old.   I performed my speech “The Reasons I Am Learning Japanese” at the annual Japanese speech festival.  The Japanese Consul General  of Vancouver gave all participants a cool pen, and congratulated us having the courage to speak in front of a large crowd of over 300 people.  I saw tears from my mother and Naho sensei after I finished my speech, they were very proud of me.  That was my happiest day.
  3. When I was in Grade 1, I recited a poem with actions in Mandarin that describes how the Moon interacts with our planet.  I was surprised that I won 2nd place in the competition as it was my first time competing.
  4. I was always top in my Chinese language classes, I got my first trophy when I was 5. I also received trophies for drawing and speech competitions.  My brother is always eying on my trophies, I told him you have to work hard to receive one.
