The wasp

I would study the wasp because I want to learn more about them so I wouldn't be as scared of them. Their creepy but unique bodies fascinate me and scares me when one is flying at me. I never knew they were 2 inches long, but then again it never wanted to measure a live one. I think it's interesting that their nest are located underground. I once stepped on a wasp nest by accident and now I never walk bare footed outside. Wasps can cause problems when they build their nests by houses or buildings. Someone will be surprise to walk on or run into a wasps nest. Ouch!

Erik Weihenmayer

I think Erik Weihenmayer is an inspiration. He proved that he can climb Mt. Everest even though he was blind. He reminds us that any one despite their disabilities can do anything that they are willing to try. He did have help climbing to the top of Mt. Everest and he gives them credit because he probably couldn't do it all by himself.

My inspiration

The person who has inspired me the most is my mom. She wants me to work harder and become successful when i grow up. She is always there to help me with homework or any other problems I may have. My mom tells me how important it is to volunteer in community work and join more school activities so I can go collage and get a job. She also pushed me to join swim team. I am grateful that she pushed me to join the team and I now realize that it is fun winning medals and making new friends with the upper class men.
