Character 1: Jonas• Jonas in the book: The Giver had a few challenges/problems.• One challenge was that he was the Receiver of Memory and all of the people in his community have to give their burdens to him.• Also, he does not like that his little brother, Gabriel, has to be released because he knows what that means.
How Character 1(Jonas)Perseveres Through Adversity.• Jonas perseveres through adversity by running away from his community with Gabriel, and found a better community to raise Gabriel.
Character 2: Adam• Adam, which most people call him Zebra, broke his arm and hand from when a car hit him.• He had lots of pain and could not do very much.
How Adam (Zebra) Perseveres Through Adversity• Zebra used his imagination to make him successful with his art.• He found ways to use this gift to help others.
Character 3:Victor In the story, Seventh Grade, Victor tries to impress a girl (Theresa). Theresa thinks that Victor actually knows French even though he knows he doesn’t.
How character 3 (Victor)perseveres through adversity• Victor perseveres through adversity by sounding like he knows French and their teacher, Mr.Bueller, goes along with it because I think that he knows that Victor has a crush on Theresa.
Reflections Page The characters that I have chosen has overcame their fear by:1. Jonas used his skills that he learned from The Giver to take care of Gabriel.2. Zebra used his imagination in a good way to find his true personality (art).3. And Theresa asked Victor to tutor her in French.
