Hi, Everyone! In case you didn’t know, Carrie Fisher’s birthday was this past Saturday.
When I watched the trailer for “The Last Jedi”, they had a close-up of Princess Leia (aka General Organa). To me, it is very sad.
I love General Organa. She is a lady that can kick butt. I think she is a great role model.
Last year, I entered a poetry contest at my school. I wrote a poem about Carrie.
I won and got to share my work on a special night in my school district.
Here I am at the podium. My Mom suggested I stand up there before the event to calm my nerves. It worked!
I was very nervous to share my poem, but was proud that I wrote it. My parents were proud of me. Grandma & Grandpa W even came to my reading. It was so exciting to be picked to read it at the Literacy Event.
I spent a lot of time on this and I hope you like it.
