The Encyclopedia Of the Ordinary girl
Taye Elima B-Berkeley C-Creative D-Dem.Republic Of Congo If you must know, I am a Congolese-
American. My Dad is from the Dem. Republic
Of Congo and I am proud to say that i
know my roots. My father being the eldest, he
is in charge of his family's people since my
grandfather past away. I have never met my
cousins in Africa, but we do communicate
on regular bases. I am really blessed that I
have a big family, because i know they will
always be here for me. Imagine Dragons Soccer By: Taye Elima creative-Relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas, esp. in the production of an artistic work I am creative because I step out of the box, I reach for places I've never been. My imagination is my key to paradise. I do things that is unexpected, breath
taking, and truly amazing. Creativity is my way of showing me. Like how I make things shine or make it dark and depressing to show the change of mood. I am creative in so many ways words cant explain
but my imagination can. Music Music is apart of me its basically what makes my life worthwhile. Everyday its makes my heart beat in harmony as the words come across me. I used to do performing arts shows like pieces of gold; a gathering of the most talented schools in wake county & center stage. Music practically raised me. The lyrics tell me everyday it gets better. Music is apart of me, my get-ups in the morning, my voice at night, my everything. New Jersey New Jersey is home to me.Its bright lights, make me urge to seek more. As I chase the pavements on spring street i an smell the smoke from the Trenton steel mill. I look upon the dull brick walls as the artistic minds of someones graffiti is displayed as if the stone were canvas. I love my home New Jersey, its a place of expression, a place of care free, a place in which i feel accepted. Berkeley the University of California based mainly on the arts, is my dream school. The chance to become a film producer, lie along the doors of Berkeley. Berkeley's submission fee is really expensive but scholarships help. A college in which showing your talent is truly amazing. I plan to major in business because trying to produce films is mainly on money. Winning 71 Nobel peace prizes really says a lot. Berkeley is a school of fun and learning. Imagine Dragons one of my all time favorite bands. Imagine Dragons is a group that talks about the sacrifices people take. The whole dynamic of their music has the edge to make you wanting more. One song I love by them is Radioactive. In my opinion it’s about what’s going on in the real world, how we try to fit in and it’s killing us. I love this band because I am an Indie fanatic! Music is something I envy but Indie is my favorite because it tells a story. Imagine Dragons story is something that can be used for generations. Tumblr Tumblr is the most difficult socials media sites ever. You have to setup a URL, music, back round everything to catch someone’s eye. I finally accomplished everything. I might just say I really fancy it. I allowed the rest to come easy, and I was satisfied. Tumblr allows me to connect with the creative minds in the world. I was so happy for creating my first blog it felt like I won the lottery. Tumblr is like a giant site for the extraordinary. Soccer has been a part of my life for a while. I started playing for the Twisters in 1st grade and just continued to dilly dally in the yard. On the other hand I have recently been on the Lady Eagles soccer team. I've played as a defender, left wing, and midfield. Soccer runs in my family, each of my siblings currently play. So it’s really cool that I can ask them for help on tricks, or areas of the game. Soccer is an amazing sport, it requires skill, and it’s a sport you can’t get bored with because it’s not something easy, so it’s really fun trying to solve the game. Film Producer- When I grow up I want to become a producer in film. Making writing come to life is a better way of seeing a different style of a book. For practice I make gifs. A Gif is an animated picture coming to life. The program gave me an outlook on how time really impacts movies. “Time is money” quotes in which most of the popular producers say. It took me a while to complete my gif. Two days to scope out my idea, a day to insert pictures another two days to edit the movement, another day for making sure it worked and finally on the last day I had to post it to my blog. The process really helped on the thought of making a 2 hour movie. My gif is only about 10 seconds and it took a week, imagine a movies for 2 hours! Although I am very patient person so it really helps the requirements needed to become a producer. Producing is for people who are interested in business in my opinion because budget, patience, creativity and ambition are strictly needed for the job no exceptions! Although you can still have fun at work, like the Chinese say “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.  Hope Solo- Inspirational soccer player! gif my friend Olivia made me ;) Photography- Cheese! When you hear that saying what comes to mind? Is it a bird, the sky, a plane? Well I think of photography. Photography is a great hobby of mine. Editing photos gives me a little fun to mess around on layouts of a picture. I usually take pictures of nature, food, or myself and friends. They inspire me to do a lot so I capture pictures to treasure the moment. P-Photography G- Game Night Australia Good day Mate! welcome to my encyclopedia about me. To start things off I will talk about my favorite country, Australia. Australia the country of great wonders, the outback is filled with life that we cant discover or explain. I like Australia because it's beauty, it has the beautiful deep blue sea, the wonders of the outback and the grand masterpiece building the Sydney Opera House. Australia is just an amazing environment for people who want to get away from their problems. Frogs are my biggest fear in
this whole entire world. Their so slimy and disgusting they give me a eerie feeling about life. To me frogs are bad luck, they are a sign of ugliness and fear. If I ever see a frog I might just run, my face will be covered in tears. The fact they have warts and fungus on them just makes me want to scream! Frogs are creatures that shouldn't exist to man kind, they cause bad luck to those who don't deserve it. F-Frogs Pikachu My love for Pikachu is tighter than a rubber band, I love Pikachu, she is a Pokemon character known for her cuteness and tender love for Ash Catchum. Pikachu is actually a electric pokemon and is a mouse and a female! Pokemon is a cartoon about creatures that help the world but some of the pokemon are good and bad. Pikachu is a main character in the Pokemon series. Pikachu even has movies own her own adventures through out the world. K-Kanata

When I went to Camp Kanata it was the best week of my life! I met exciting people and did exciting things that gave me more skill in life. I had the opportunity to meet other kids. I am blessed for the Outreach program that provided all my fees to attend. Although there are always rainy days on a parade.

It was about a quarter to 9:00a.m and I was heading to my rank canoeing. See canoeing was my favorite rank until I was paired up with some boys who were under my age. Today’s skill was “tipping” Tipping required the boat to flip over while you retrieved it and try not to drown. (Yea that’s a so called learning experience) Well after we finished that one of my boat mates decided to take a swim in the lake. Great.

So meanwhile there was an awkward silence in the boat for a good 10 minutes what seemed like 10 hours when finally the call back whistle blew. My partner and I were in need for another man since we were only about 10 and 8 so we really could not control the strong force of the boat, and it just so happens it was a windy day not to mention we were stuck in the back of the lake. Everyone was probably relying on me to turn the boat around and get it moving since I was the eldest.

I could feel goose bumps run up my leg and I clenched my jaw. “Come on back” everyone screamed. We were the only canoe left and that’s when I realized a tear fell from my eye. The water works blew. “I want to go home forget it I’ll swim back” I whimpered. “No you won’t” the boy said. Astonished by his tone of voice we started to pedal to shore. “Switch paddles to the right” he ordered. I lifted my ore with no hesitation. Finally we bumped into dock.

The joy of being on land was amazing. I was about to kiss the ground until I realized Kanata was filled with frogs. I hate frogs, but I learned something that day. Trust and believing will make a situation so much easier. poem The expression on my teams face was horrifying especially
Taye it looked like she saw a ghost
We were doing layups and they arrived
They were twice our size there was no way we could ever beat them

We laid along the bench as coach was yelling at us “Remember your plays” she hollered
Most of us looked at her not even trying to collaborate what she said

Each basket the black team came in easy,
But finally……

“Foul on 52!” I said to the score keeper.
I could see her stomping, she was lucky I didn’t call a technical
The blue team made some shots keeping the score at 12 to 8; blue team was in the lead.
I noticed obnoxious 52 came out…

I rested my head in my hands
“Come on this is the championships!” I didn’t even noticed
The score since I was caught in a mini depression until….
Woo! The crowd roared we were winning! 15 to 12
“Put me back in the game!” I demanded

I worried so deeply I was mono to mono with 52
She seemed pretty rude but I understand the game was heated.
Luckily she gave me a foul and I missed the first free throw but made the second one.
She came running with the ball in her hands to our side of the court

The ball was in my hands and the girl blocking me was twice my size
But it was too late, swish it went in making it 17/13
Later only 30 seconds left the referee called a foul on Johanna, the girl made both shots
BERN!! It was too late we won,
The championship game we made it so far and we reached the finish lined coming in victory THANK YOU !!!!!!! its been a joy to have you read
about my life! thanks for watching
