Lara's class

Three years ago I started receiving English and French classes, Lara has been my teacher for all this time, I learned how to organize a text, how to take notes from a film or a video (TED), how to understand a book but the most important thing she taught me how to think. With Lara I made so much activities like describing myself, recipes and interesting things, she always let me show my point of view and my opinion.

She is one of the best teachers I ever had, she is original, creative... and I love it, for luck, she helped me, by reading and writing, be in that way too. Thanks you for all this years.

Danielle Feinberg

Resultado de imagen de danielle feinberg pixarWhen she was eleven she wanted to be an artist but some well-meaning adults told her she couldn't make a living being an artist
She have always loved science and maths so she started studying computer programming from that moment she felt in love with the magic of animation short films.
Soon she started working at Pixar Animation Studios, making those movies she can make new worlds and bring robots to life play with lights and shadows with the computer, she make art, she is an artist, so yes, she could finally make a living being an artist.

Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model.

She is Cameron Russell, i love her talk, it is about the 
black models, there is a very low 
percentage of black models and the most of the black
 13-years-old girls are unhappy 
with their look because the beauty canon is a white, tall 
and blond woman, it is only marketing.
She said that the models are the most insecure people, 
and they sometimes are sad or 
depressed, most of the photos are edited and she 
said that she doesn't like it

I like it very much because i always think about why
 the canon beauty is a white girl and not a black ,
 they are pretty too and they have beautiful bodies.
The marketing hurts in teenagers a lot
 it has to be stopped

The Papalagi

A german anthropologist, called Erich Scheurmann, went to study a tribe in Tiavea, Upolu (one of the Samoan islands), and met Tuiavii, the village's chief. They started to get close to each other so Tuiavii told Erich his story.
The tiavean chief had been in Europe time ago but he came back impressed and disappointed about our culture. Tuiavii wrote about it, however never intended to show it to Erich until they finally had total trust.
In his texts he calls us Papalagi (white men) and he describes our culture as "a one way road to nowhere".
One of the best quotes of Tuiavii that the anthropologist could remember was "you fellow think that you can show us the light, but what you really do is try to drag us down into your pool of darkness.
Erich translated the book to german and published it.
