My name has many meanings and origins, but the main origins are Russian and Slavic. Tania is short for the name Tatiana, which means fairy queen. The name Tania means you are positive, imaginative, and cooperative. You are also giving and have a desire to inspire. I love my name because it is unique and different.
One of my most favorite singers is Alessia Cara. One reason I like her is because her songs are meaningful and thoughtful. She is very talented and an inspiration to many people. My favorite song by her is "Stay". This song is about freely accepting things in life.
One of my favorite books of all time is Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. It's about a boy named Jacob who goes to visit the child's home his grandfather lived in when he was a child. He soon finds out that the children in living in this home are peculiar. They have special powers such as being able to fly, breathe fire, and they never grow up. Jacob goes on an amazing journey with the kids from his grandfather's childhood, and the children tell him extraordinary stories about his grandfather. I love this book because it is exciting, funny, and and a great adventure.
Over the summer my family and I flew to Seattle, Washington. We visited many places there including the Space Needle, Pike Market Place, and museums such as the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum and MoPOP. My favorite place we went to was the Space Needle because the view from the top of the elevator inside of it was amazing. We also took a ferry to Bainbridge Island and visited my cousins who live there. The island is very small, with a population of about 25,000 people and only a couple middle schools!
One of my favorite activites is karate because we learn about many different ways to defend ourselves. We develop confidence and respect, which is very important. At Team Karate Centers, we also learn about the history of karate, including many significant weapons and martial artists. I have been doing karate for almost two years and I am a brown belt. Another reason I love karate is because I have made many friends at the karate studio.
