“Don’t be afraid of new areas!”

The moment ms. Maxwell said “people who are changing world” Elon musk was the first person to pop up into my mind. He inspires me because of the reasons he does what he does. He was once asked the reason why he had the crazy dream of creating an all-electric car? His answer was “In university, I thought what are the problems that will most likely to effect the future of the world?” That shows what kind of revolutionary and pragmatic man he is.

A teacher, a scholar a rebel, They’s are some of the key characteristics of the man behind SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity and with a 13.9 billion dollar net worth one of the most powerful and influential people in the whole world. Musk has stated that the goals of SolarCity, Tesla, and SpaceX revolve around his vision to change the world and humanity.

To change the world it takes so much more than sheer talent! You need openness, a willingness to work hard and most importantly a reason you push yourself on a daily basis. Think to yourself why do you get out of bed and work as hard as you possibly can doing something you love? And if you can’t answer that question, are you?!

The first part of the project was to make a collage. A college is challenging because you need to show the emotion and life of your world-changing genius. I was thinking way too hard on this blog you’re reading, so I decided to numb my mind on what app I could use to make my collage. I decided to use my go to apps…… Phonto and Superimpose!!

For this project they gave us key questions to answer that would help us actually know some dirt on are world-changing women or man. Here they are!

Birthdate/Lifespan: June 28

Country of birth: South African

Occupation: business magnate, investor, engineer, and inventor.

What did this person do that was particularly influential?

First, he has changed what is being driven on our roads, by creating an all electric car, aka the Tesla. He is the CEO of SpaceX, the only spacecraft currently flying that is capable of returning significant amounts of cargo to Earth. He has said that he believes he could go to Mars!

What characteristics do you think made them influential?
(talented, kind, resilient, etc.)

Other than being a genius, he is curious, kind, innovative, open, resilient and hard working. How did people react to the changes or ideas that this individual had/has?
Some people do not feel comfortable with these ideas but overall I think nowadays we are living in a pretty open curious society.
Explain any experiences or thoughts that had influenced this individual.

I think that he is pushed by people saying CAN’T or IMPOSSIBLE!

If you could ask this person one question, what would it be?

What makes you want to change the world? And why not let someone else do it?

Overall I was inspired to know about what drives the movers, the difference makers, the rebels, the doers, the achievers, the changers, the shakers and the shapers of the world.

Poetically Passive

An America poet called Rita Dove once said: “Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.” She says that because it is true if you explained how much you loved the view you wouldn’t say “that looks nice” NO you would say “I can’t tell we’re the heaven ends and the earth begins.” As you can see the power of poetry is endless. That is why this term we have been learning all about the different kinds of poetry and the effects they have.

 

There were many different types of poetry we have learned about like Similes, Haikus or Experience poems. A Haiku is a three lined poem with 5 syllables in the first and last line and 7 for the one in between. It is quite simple but is a classic Japanese poem. Fun fact: they used to play a game called Tanka in Japan where you would practically have a poem battles.

For the final project, Ms. Willemse has decided that we will use an app called Book Creator to create a book of all the poems we have done this year on Worldview.  Each poem would be its own with a new slide and a unique way to mark it like a picture and animation. I feel like I could have made my poem book more unique with different kinds of ideas to mark it as mine. One part I found I did well was adding a couple extra poems to spice it up a little. The hardest part of this project was putting everything together and making it look aesthetically pleasing.

 

In conclusion, I think that this project was surprisingly fun. I have to admit that at the start I thought it was a bit of waste of time, but now my eyes have been open and I would love to learn more about poetry and progress in the near future.
