During 5th semester, our English
teacher asked us to do three
projects. The fist one was about
our lifes, the second one about
disabled people and the third one
was to organize a play. In this
presentation I will talk about each
one of my projects and my
During the first period of my fifth semester, our English
teacher asked us to create a presentation with our
autobiography. We had to use powerpoint to illustrate some
episodes of our lifes and to describe, in some words, who we
I think it was the easiest project, because we had to talk about
ourselves, and I think we are experts on that subject. I really liked
this exercise because, when we presented our slides, I got to know
my classmates better; I dicovered new things about them and
enjoyed watching their photographs.
The second period, my beautiful English teacher asked us to make a report
on how enterprises or companies treat people with disabilities. The job was
to make a video and a spot about Earth conservation, by teams. My team
was conformed by Mony Polanco, Tony Soler and Romina Calle.
At first I thought it would be a little difficult, but as I started I realized it
would be really interesting.
My project began when I called
to the Fairmont Princess Hotel,
to get in touch with Mr. Lars
Garrido. I know he is the
director of operations because
he is the father of my sister’s
friend. When I interviewed him
I learned that this big company
does hire people with
disabilities and there are five
My ecological spot showed 5 simple ways to save the
planet. It gave advices on how to become a superhero to
our planet, because it is starting with small thing, that you
can do bigger acts later. It was really funny because I had
to record my voice to narrate the spot.
I really enjoyed doing this project because I learned about
disabled people and how are they treated in the professional
environment. It was great because I found good news and it
was very touching.
Many times, they are discriminated just for being a little
different from us, but the truth is that they are, sometimes,
better than us in many ways. They don’t give up and they try
to overcome the obstacles that life presents to them.
Even though they have a physical problem, they develop other
qualities and virtues. So it is really great that they are
considered to do normal jobs, such as receptionists.
This period, our assignment was to organize and present a play to kindergartens.
3°D decided to present High School Musical.
I was the “director” of the play, but I also helped to create the
choreographies, and to edit the script. It was a little difficult
because it took a lot of time and effort to make all this stuff work
together, and honestly, I consider we had very little time to plan the
Even though we were able to
rehearse 2 times before the
final show, we were all both
nervous and excited. The
boys were a bit confused
with the choreographies but
the girls were confident
about it. We learned our
dialogues and our stage
doors and we also prepared
I played the role of Jason, a
boy, so I had to get long
shorts, sneakers and hats; it
was really funny.
I have to confess that the first time we presented High School
Musical, most of our dialogues and chats were improvised
because we were nervous. However, this was the best show
we ever made, all the audience laughed and they were really
interested in the play. It was quite a success.
We also presented it, two more times, and even
though we liked it, we were all tired and exhausted.
To organize a play is a hard job, but, in the end, I
think we all enjoyed it and had a great moment.
We also had the chance to
watch other plays, such as
Hercules, High School
Muscial 2 and Snow White.
I thought they were all
well-made and very funny,
specially Snow White; Alex
Castrejón did a great job as
Hercules and High School
Musical 2 was super
Even though some period
projects were a little difficult to
organize, I liked doing each one
of them. I got to know my
classmates better and to spend
more time with them as friends.
It was a hard but great
experience for me!
