(be humble, don’t flaunt your knowledge, through the eye of Maori). I do not try to be better than anyone else, I try to be better than myself.

Kia Ora,  my name is Caprice. My culture is Maori Cook Island and I am proud of it! I am 11 years old. The school I go to is Tamaki Kura and I’m in Room 7. My name is French Italian. It means that I have an jovial nature but is apt to have an emotional life. I am a sporty person. This means that I like to play sports inside and out of school. I’m a outgoing because I am not shy to contribute in anything such as school sports teams. Funny because I always tell my friends things that are really funny to them, and a dreamer because I dream of being a scientist who studies bodies! My hobbies include hanging out in my room, hanging out with my friends, or just  kicking back with my funny family at home. Sometimes I want to save my pocket money, but then I end up spending it. My favourite singer is Beyonce because she inspires me to sing! I have wavy, ink black hair, with traces of brown in it. As dark as chocolate. My eye colour is light brown. They are the colour of dark brown tree trunks. I love to study and learn more about whatever it is we are learning. My favourite subject for college is going to be history. This is because I love to study about the truth, not just things that are made up out of peoples minds. The special thing about me is that I’m the only girl in my family and I get anything I like. I am a responsible person who knows how to take care of myself like a golden bird flying around the world to try and capture others to take care of(but I have to ask first their parents first).

F is for father
A is for and
M is for mother
I is for I
L is for love
Y is for you.

In my family I have 3 brothers and no sisters. I have one pet puppy named Yogi Bear Davis. My brothers names are Cavhyon who is 10 years old, Dupri who is 8 years old, and Daimai who is 8 years old also. My mums name is Ariana Davis, my dads name is Jimi Tokoa, and my step dads name is Rex Toia. I love my family because they treat me the way I want to be treated. My mum and dad whai kai mo to whanau (provides food for my family) and always loves us well. I love my family and I don’t want them to change to impress my friends or anyone else!

I come from the Tamaki Community and I am proud of it! Our community is clean and sometimes it’s a rubbish bin! Theres a few beaches around our community and there are public pools. I am so lucky to have the friends I have now, they are talented and inspiring, these friends are: Ngatokurua, Beautiful, Bella, Destiny, Charday, Fili, Faith, Mei, Brooklyn, Unique, Salome, Harmony, Lolo, William, Quita, Lesieli, Sake, Peter, Mavis, Sam, and many more.

My favourite sport is Rugby because I can just run through people like I’m flying on the ground. Netball is another option because you can shoot hoops and my mum loved playing it when she was young, so she passed the experience down to me! I go to a Marae in Thames, which was where I was born and raised until the age of 3.
Also I love to do kapa haka, and sing Maori songs with my mum and dad! My mum calls our family the Te whanau o te harakeke which means the family of flax. This is because we have flax all inside our house, and we love to use it to make kete’s, Maori flowers, and more. Algunos de mis otras aficiones son apoyar a mis hermanos como una molesta mosca ellos y observando cada uno de sus pasos. Soy muy protectora de mis hermanos, a pesar de que tenemos nuestro tiempo en casa (some of my other hobbies include supporting my brothers like a fly bugging them and watching their every step. I am very protective over my brothers, even though sometimes we have our times at home or even out of home!)

My hopes and fears for this year at Tamaki Primary School, is that I’m afraid that I might grow and my personality might change, then I might hate the friends I was really friends with for a long time. My hopes are to become a responsible leader for the younger ones at our school. I want to become a reliable trustworthy person who can take care of herself with no help from others, who can take care of others as well. I fear of me becoming a horrible,bad person to one and others. I hope that things will not change, I hope that I get a better life if I just keep calm and learn at school. Being at T.P.S for 4 years has been an experience for me to know that I’m not the only person in the world! to know that there are others out there who have hopes and fears too. I want hope that in Room 7 all this thinking about me being a bad person will change and it starts right now! I want to achieve my goals and I want to achieve my work in Intermediate, I want to leave this class at the end of this year with a big smile on my face, looking back at the times I mucked up, and remembering that it’s just the beginning of the end!! My fears is not getting an excellence in my description. I want to develope, I want to use more critical thinking to understand the type of language that we are talking about. I want to use more of my prior knowledge to figure out clues in something I’m reading, I want to improve on my maths, and I definitely look forward to trips this year. Don’t lose hope, when the sun goes down the stars go out! Smile let everyone know that TODAY you’re alot stronger than yesterday.

This is my Self Description. I have used poetic language and language that has represented me! This is what I look like:

Kia Ora Caprice. Thank you so much for writing this QUALITY piece about you. I can clearly see the Aspirations and Inspirations theme coming through. You have shown us a full picture of yourself and where you fit in your family. You certainly are a "taonga" in our school - now we know where it all comes from.
