This was her statement as to why she should be chosen to be a torch bearer. . Wow I am so happy to be nominated as one of the people who might be chosen to represent our school to carry the Olympic Torch. I have given this some thought over the weekend and I think I am able to show all of the Olympic Values.. Friendship is a major part of my life. To have friends and to be a friend is sometimes hard but having respect, being loyal and being there for someone when they need you is an amazing feeling.. I am determined to excel at school but sometimes have to find the courage to believe in myself and try again when things are not going as I hoped.. . If I were to be chosen to carry the torch it would be a great honour for me, my family and I hope an inspiration to a lot of people in our school..
