My Tribute Costume

My name is Judy and I come from a country called Hong Kong. I live with my mom, dad, and sister. My family means a lot to me. On weekends, we usually go on a walk at night to spend some time together. They support me when I’m struggling and having a hard time. My friends are important to me as well. They help me whenever I need it and will always be there for me. Even though most of my friends go to different schools, we always find time to hang out with each other at least once a week. People usually say that I’m kind, outgoing, and helpful. The qualities and characteristics that are important to me are honesty, loyalty, trust, and kindness. I want to be able to rely on them without thinking much about whether I should trust them and be able to know the truth without them lying. My favourite colours are pink, purple, and blue. My favourite place to go is the beach. I find it very relaxing and fun. When I grow up, I hope to become a vascular neurologist. I have been interested in this job for about 3 years now. Being able to save people’s lives and studying things about strokes and health interests me. I’m aware of how much stress this will put me on, but in the end, I know that all my hard work will pay off and possibly achieve my goal. I also enjoy sports. One of my favourite sports are tennis. I love playing with my sister and friends. They make it a lot more fun for me. In my free time, I like to read or spend time with my family and friends. 

Reflection

My visual representation is innovative because it tells a lot about me. For example, the colour of the earrings in the same colour as a tennis ball. That shows that I enjoy playing tennis. The necklace represents friendship, I thought that the necklace would be a friendship necklace representing that my friends are very important to me. Next is my clothing. The white coat represents that I want to be a doctor when I grow up, and the pink and purple shirt and skirt represents 2 of my 3 favourite colours. Moving on, the colour of my nails are blue. Blue is another one of my favourite colours. Last, is the flip-flops. This shows that I enjoy going to the beach. It is also in one of my favourite colours, blue. I developed this idea when I was working on my project by referring it back to the previous paragraph I wrote about myself. The website I used is ‘character creator’. It didn’t have many options that I like but in the end, I decided that I would make it work and created a model that represents a lot about me. What I enjoyed about my visual representation was that I got to choose what outfit I wanted, and the fact that I got to change the colour of the clothing made it even better! I also liked how you got to choose the shade of the colour you wanted instead of it only having one shade like hot pink or bright yellow. They also had different types of footwear so that you could choose from for different occasions. I thought that it was very fun to play around and experiment with it. If I were to do something to improve on my project for next time, I would spend more time on my character to make it look more like me. I would also spend more time on my paragraph and add a little more information to it about myself. I learned a lot about my creative abilities during this process. At first, I didn’t like the choices of clothing they gave us I thought that it didn’t match my style very much. That’s when I decided to experiment a bit with the colour of the clothing and tried if any of the pieces of clothing would go with something I would wear. After I was happy with the choices of my clothing, I started to add things that represent me more. In the end, I realized that my creative abilities were better than I thought it was before this project.
