- Attending school is fun. I like my schoolbag very much. It is interesting to put various things in it. I want to make a lot of friends. I do not exactly know who is going to be my desk partner.
- I received several training on personal development. Responsibilities have become higher as my grade advances. I would love to make my parents happy by being an excellent student.
- I have played outside very often. Sometimes, my mom would scold me for not doing summer homework. However, she took me to many places because I have cast in a movie.
- What movie was it?
- I have played the main role of “Nuden Sondor” movie.  It was very hard to stand outside in the morning cold. My favorite part is the part where dad and I have played with bubbles. Please, watch my movie.
