Hi my name is Norah-Jade and this is my visual Mihi for 2020, On the top left you could see it says Family that means that I love my family soo much, on the top right there is a cricket ball saying cricket and 2 bats, so yea you definitely know that my favourite sport is cricket and every Saturday me and my friend Jane go and play for the Ellerslie cricket club team and we really enjoy it. On the bottom Left you could see there are 5 Olympic rings and inside of it shows Factors of each equations. The last one left shows my Nationality which makes you know that I am full Samoan, and i know there ain't anymore on there but I just want to add one more thing, and it is that I go to church and enjoy it and I am Christian and Mormon the reason why i'm both because they're both the same, they're the same because they both beleive in the same person/thing. anyways I am from the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints.

My Name

Whats the story behind your name? Talofa Lava I am Norah-Jade

When I was born my Mum and Dad couldn't decide on what name to call me, then my Aunty walked in and she said to call me Norah, and that name only lasted a day because the next day my Aunty from Australia came to the hospital to see and said "we should call her Jade" but my Aunty also wanted to just call me Norah so then my Mum and Dad decided to put them together and call me Norah-Jade. 

and thats why my name is Norah-Jade :)

Explanation writing

A Job for me:

What do you wanna be/do when you grow up? Are you sure about it? Why do you want to be/do it? Hi my name is Norah-Jade and today I will be telling you about what I want to be and do in the future. Hope you enjoy it.

Everyday I wake up to ask myself, What do I want to be or do in the future? But to be honest if someone asks me that I always say that I want to be a flight attendant because it sounds very interesting, even though I say that I am still not even sure about it. But after I say flight attendant in my head I always tell myself “why did i say that” because after I say “flight attendant” another interesting job just pops up in my head. Like being a lawyer.

One day I went to the airport to say goodbye to my uncle. As soon as he left I saw a 2 lady’s walking and they were dressed as a flight attendant but before they walked in, one of them stopped and took 2 big deep breaths. I thought to myself, is she nervous I never knew that being a flight attendant was a hard job, so I asked myself again What do I want to be or do in the future? When we left the airport we were going back home and I asked myself again What do I want to be or do in the future?

When I asked myself again I thought to myself saying “I think I should stop asking myself the same question everyday because I think that's why I don’t know what to be or do”. When I was going to bed something popped up in my head then I thought for a while why do I want to be this? And then I said “hmmm well I’ve been playing ever since year 2” then I said How am I going to do it? Then I said “I am going to do it but I really wanna know though”.
