Hi Everyone it’s Lucas!
I’m 14 years old and I am a grade 9 student at Charles Best. I came from Hillcrest Middle school and I was born in Taiwan. One thing I really like about high school is the block schedule. There are only two to three classes a day and each block is about 2 hours. The long class time allows me to put in my full effort and focus on the course. I currently have PHE and EAL in my quarter one class.
One thing that is special about me is that I can speak three languages fluently. My grandma’s first language is Cantonese and she taught me the language when I was at a very young age. When I see my grandma, I still speak Cantonese to her, and she always encouraged me to speak it more often so I won’t forget it. I also speak Mandarin and that’s because I was born in Taiwan and it was the official language there. The third language I speak is English. I’m really happy that I could speak multiple languages because I could travel to many countries and not having to worry about the language barrier. I could also make more friends that speak different languages.
In my leisure time, I enjoy a variety of sports such as scootering, mountain biking, and snowboarding. I like scootering mainly because of the wide variety of tricks you could learn and the feeling of accomplishment when you land a new trick. I also like the creativity in scootering. You could come up with sick combos (the combination of the tricks you do) and sometimes even come up with new tricks. I also enjoy doing art such as drawing, photoshop, and sketching. I enjoy photoshop especially because of the refreshing images you could create. Sometimes when I’m on YouTube, I watch videos of people doing photoshop to get better ideas and learn new functions.
I also enjoy camping a lot! This is a picture of me from a hiking camping trip I did this summer. I went on this trip with my friend and his family. It took us 8 hours to hike up the mountain with our heavy backpack. I like camping because of the amazing places you can go to and the skills you learn.
This is my most recent photoshop artwork. I first drew the outline on paper and put together the digital design on photoshop. On the t-shirt, the images resembles the music I like to listen to.
Thank you for reading! I hope that I will get to know you and have a great year in Butterfly Effect!
