The Prophet Mohammed (peace upon him)

My hero is the prophet Mohammed for many reasons. First of all, people in the past and today keep calling him honest, trustworthy, and unique. In fact, he never lied and all the people kept their possessions with him when they traveled because he was trustworthy. Second, he showed the people the right way. Because, in the past men didn’t respect women, they were alcoholic, and didn’t know about the lord. They were in darkness. Third, he was prudent and he knew how to deal with different situations. Moreover, he convinced these people to stop the bad things that they were doing and asked them to do the right things. For example, to treat people right and pray to god. Finally, the Prophet Mohammed in not just my hero but he is every muslims hero for what he showed us.

Namie Amuro

Namie Amuro is one of my favorite Japanese singers. The first reason is that she is a rap and pop singer. Her songs can make people enjoy her music and dance easily. So I always dance and sing with her songs in crazy situations. The second reason is that she is a fashion leader in Japan and Taiwan. For example, every girl likes to imitate her clothes and cosmetics. They also called her “The leader of vogue.” Finally, she is a singer and a mother. She was brave and got married at 20 years old during the height of her career. After she divorced, she still can educate her son by herself. In conclusion, she can take care of her son and the entertainment business very well. She will still be a successful woman and everyone will like her in the future.

My City


Jeddah is the city where I live. It is close to the Red Sea and has a lot of culture and businesses. For fun, my friends and I go to coffee shops, the beach, and play soccer.


Jeddah is only 50 minutes away from Makkah (English "Mecca"), so we go there a lot. Jeddah is a beautiful place to grow up. The weather is cool and the people are friendly. If you want to read more about Jedda, click here.

Alisa's New Year

Alisa is from Korea, and she has a special day called “New Year’s Day.” She told me it is an important day for Koreans. They celebrate on January 1 of the lunar calendar. She will wear traditional clothes and visit her ancestors’ graves to thank them for protecting her. She will also celebrate with her whole family, like cousins, uncles and so on. They will eat dumplings, fresh fruit and rice cakes which can bring wealth. Before she celebrates, she has to clean the house, and prepare food and money to welcome New Year’s Day. She will chat, watch TV, play cards and visit famous sights with her whole family all day. She will receive and give cash and new clothes at the same time. She is looking forward to New Year’s Day coming because she doesn’t have to go to school. It is a very long vacation for her. New Year’s Day is a wonderful memory for Alisa.

An Unusual Day

The last day in my country was wondeful.To begin with, my family and my friends were nice with me. For example they had a party for me, and I was very happy. Also, I had dinner with some friends and also with my family. Next, I went with my mom for shopping and I enjoyed it and everything. In addition, I played cards with my friends and we were at the sea. When I left, my mom was sad and I was scared about the trip. In conclusion, the last day in my country was great, not just for me but for everyone.
