We had three guest coming to the year Eight and Seven block to share a story about their life, to help us know what we would want to be when we grow up. Mr Paddison shared quotes and stories about being awesome. Once he finished sharing his story he passed it on to Marcus Winter. Marcus Winter is a sand artist, he talked about how he was drawing in the streets and now he is performing in ships. We stood up and danced to the song Uptown Funk but we were only dancing to the part that says “ don’t believe me just watch.”
His story was an really inspiring story. It makes you feel, you want to try harder next time. He also mentioned that he performed for New Zealand got talent but he didn't make it through. Instead of us saying you got bombed we said “bounced” meaning of bounced means when you get bounced, bounce back. He also mentioned that when you're doing something your mind is always makes you think negative stuff like this is not good, how about if no one likes it. That’s why you always think positive.
The other person talked about how much he really loved basketball that he made a site called Glory Legend. Glory Legend is an site where you can watch yourself play with your team versing the other team. It is an iPad that records you playing, you just simply press start and then it will start recording, once you finish playing it will finish recording and then send it to everyone playing, so you can watch yourself playing basketball.
Once they finish sharing their story, three year 8 student went up and each person and shared a thank you speech to Mr Paddison, Marcus Winter and Louis. After that we sang a song, then we took a selfie together, and then we made our way back to class.
