On Wednesday I met some fascinating people.
I met an amazing writer Beatrix Potter who got motivated from writing the book Peter Rabbit to become an author. What I learnt about this author was that, not only did she write over 23 Children’s books but she also saved some farms that still stand today In England.
I also met the terrifying Hitler. He on the other hand ruled with lies and war. This German speaking terrorist was born in Austria and had three greatest allies. They were Germany, Japan and Italy. His greatest achievement was ruling 6 countries in only 3 months.
But my favorite person I met (the most interesting one) was Margret Thatcher. Inspired by her dad and supported by her husband she became the first woman leader in England. Though criticised she never gave in and was the longest serving Prime Minister.
On Wednesday I met some interesting leaders
I met Bethany Hamilton, she lost her arm in a shark attack and it is a miravle that she is still alive today, she is now married so her new last name is Dirkson.
Hitler Killed at least 6 million people and took over 6 contries in a month.
Tecumseh, he was involved in the war of 1812, and he lead his people, the aboriginals, into the war.
Beatrix Potter, wrote childrens stories and bought farms to save for everyone to see, and those farms are still standing to day.
The most interesting person I met was probably Hitler. He took over 6 contries in a month! His geratest allies were, Japan, Germany, and Italy. In the end he at least 6million people just because they didnt have blond hair and blue eyes, which was ironic because he didnt have blond hair or blue eyes. He also tried to kill all the jews.
I met 4 leaders. They were Abraham Lincoln, Natilie MacMaster, Emily Carr, and Amelia Earheart. The most intresting person I meet on Wednesday was Amelia Earheart because she gave long and informative ansears instead of just answearing with a couple words. She was also intresting because she was the first woman and the second person to fly across the Atlantic Ocean.
The 3 leaders I met were Terry Fox, Winston Churchill, and Aurthur Curry. The most interesting person I met was Winston Churchill. He was interesting because he was a part of Hitler's defeat. Also, he was prime minister of England. He didn't have a good childhood but he overcame it.
On Tuesday I met Wayne Gretzky, Rick Hansen, Annie Oakley and Steve Jobs. The most interesting person I met was Annie Oakley. Annie Oakley was interesting and inspiring because she did things that most women thought only men were able to do. I learned that she taught women how to use guns, how to hunt and how to defend themselves. She also performed on stage and was considered the first female superstar.
I met Margaret Thatcher, Isabella Beckford and Carlotta Gris. I really liked meeting Carlotta Gris because she is a great dancer. I learnt that she danced from a young age and worked hard at becoming great at it.
I met Hatshepsut and Carlotta Gris and Helen Keller. I learned something new about all of them. Hatshepsut said that her greatest achievement was making her tomb, I thought that that was pretty interesting. Helen Keller said that how she gained power\fame was by being blind and deaf that was also cool. Carlotta said she speaked Italian, French and English I think that it's good to speak more than one language, also Carlotta said that she was a good leader because she was such a good dancer. They were the most interesting leaders I met, but the most interesting leader I met was Hatshepsut because I didn't even know about her
I met Bethany Hamilton, Beatrice Potter, and Hatshepsoot.
The most interesting one in my opinion was Bethany Hamilton. She lost 60 percent of her blood after the shark attack and miraculously survived.2 months ago she got married so I guess her last name is Dirkson now. She got back into the water 26 days after the attack and was named the best female athlete comeback.
I met King David, Abraham Lincoln and Cesar Milan. Abraham Lincoln was the most interesting because he stopped slavery in the United States and he won a lot of battles for the North against the South in the US civil war.
Thanks Neil. I enjoyed learning about Abraham Lincoln too. I thought Jim Henson was interesting too:-)
I had lots of fun at Lunch of the Leaders.
I met Lexi's mom, Leonardo da Vinci, and Mercer Meyer. Lexi's mom is very kind and nice and she survived cancer. I learned that da Vinci was born in Italy and spoke both English and Italian. I was happy to meet Mercer Meyer because I read his books all the time. One of my favourite books by him is "Just Me in the Tub". He is from Arkansas.
I had a lot of fun at lunch of leaders.
I met 5 people,(50 cents, Alina, Malala and Milen Ceasar or Ceaser Milen LOL. I think Malala was the most interesting she had a hard childhood and a hard life. .But I think all of the people I met were different. I learned that Malala stood up for her rights. (Thursday)
oh and I also met Bob Patterson.
sorry MRS Thorne
I met three leaders, Mr.Main Julius Caesar and J.R.R.Tolkien. The most interesting person was Julius Caesar. He was interesting because he ruled a quarter of the world and his greatest achievement was destroying the British tribes. The lunch of the leaders was interesting and nice because I met people from different times and with different views of the world.
On Thursday, I met Jim Henson, the creator of The Muppets, Cyndi Lauper, who was a famous singer and band leader, and Malala, who was brave and stood up for girl’s rights. The most interesting person I met was Jim Henson because I didn’t know that he made The Muppets and other children’s stories. And he had a really cool beard. Cyndi Lauper was interesting because I did not know that she ran away into the woods from her stepdad with her dog Sparkles for two weeks. I also didn’t know that she had a really horrible childhood and that’s what made Cyndi Lauper interesting. Malala was interesting because she went home on a bus and went to a different country to learn more.

I met 3 people. I met Harriet and Carlota and Henrik. the most interesting 1 was Harriet Tubman she led over 300 people out of slavery.
I met Carey Price, who I already knew was a good hockey player, but I learned he played goal for the Montreal Canadians. I also met Terry Fox. He might have been the most interesting but since I knew a lot about him, he wasn’t and I only learned that he was born in Winnipeg. The last person I met was Malala. I think she was probably the most interesting, but I didn’t have time to finish all the questions. Luckily I read about her on the first blog post and so I knew what happened to her.
I would have rather we all present our leaders instead of interviewing, that way we would have learned about all the leaders and their lives, not just the answers to the questions on the sheet, which took so long to write I didn't get to meet very many leaders.
I met Albert Einstein who says he is a super genius and he discovered the theory of relativity. I also met Thomas Jefferson who is smart and wrote the declaration of relativity, his greatest achievement was writing the declaration of relativity, he spoke English, he wanted to help people, his greatest supporter was John Abrams and he died when he was 83. The last person I met was Mrs.Thorne's father who is a great father, he taught his daughter how to be a professional, his greatest achievement was his children, he speaks English, he loves his students and he is 60 years old.
I met Winston Churchill and Jim the creator of the muftis and Sesame Street.
I think most interesting person was Winston Churchill and I thought he was interesting because he was defending august Hitter. I learned that Winston Churchill had a brother named Jack that was six years younger than him.
thanks Jemiah! I thought that you chose king David was awesome, he was a brave man. I also learned a lot about Winston Churchill.
I met: James Cook
The most interesting person I met was: James Cook
What made him interesting is because he found: Australia
I learned that: James Cook was a good sailor.
On Thursday I met 3 leaders, Harriet Tubman, Kate Middleton, and Walt Disney. Harriet Tubman was the most interesting for me, because she helped 300 slaves escape in 19 trips! I learned that a lot of people trusted her with their lives.
At the lunch of the leaders I met 3 people? Steve Jobs Josef Stalin and Lee Edward Fodi. The most interesting guy i met was Lee Edward Fodi because I already know some stuff about him but not as much as he or she did. But my favourite thing about him is the books he wrote.
At the lunch of the leaders. I met Harriet Tubman. I also met Keith Groom .Well it is hard to decide who I like better. If I like Keith Groom or Harriet Tubman .Well I like Harriet Tubman better, she was very interesting about slavery and freeing people.I wish I cod of met more but I did not.
It was a fun time at the Lunch of leaders. I met Mark Marawa, 50 Cent and Eminem . The most interesting to me was Mark Marawa because he solves lots of problems in Langley . He really cares about the people and what they need.
I met a lot of great leaders like Shakespeare
Shakespeare wrote 38 plays.
Leonardo da Vinci is famous for his fabulous paintings.
My favourite is Shakespeare because I like watching plays.
the most interesting person I met today was probily Ben and Sam they were very nice to me and they are both one of my best friends. he had fun talking to each other. I never knew Ben liked football and that Sam did his on JR. Tolkien I liked JR. Tolkien better because I liked his books better.
I met Marshal Lynch he was a football player on the sea hawks and jr. Tolkien was an author of the lord of the rings and the hobbit series. jr. Tolkien was my favourite because I liked his books.
I enjoyed the Lunch of Leaders and meeting new and interesting people I have to say that Dan Marino was the most interesting to me. He took the time to answer my questions and I think we both learned a lot about each other's character.
Dan Marino was the quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. He lead his team into the playoffs 10 times!
He found himself in a leadership position rather than having chosen to be a leader. He took that position willingly and ended up being amazing at it. I found this particular fact interesting because most of the leaders are ones that decided to be a leader and I think it's just as cool that Dan Marino was pushed into that role and ended up having great leadership skills.
Dan Marino didn't only show leadership in sports but he showed leadership in more personal areas too. He created a foundation to support autism causes after his own son was diagnosed.
I met lots of amazing leaders at the lunch and I would like to have had more time to learn about each of them.
I met two people, Terry Fox and King David. I have to say I really enjoyed meeting them both, I can't choose a favourite. Terry fox ran across Canada with one leg raising money for cancer. King David was a brave man fighting Goliath as a young shepherd and becoming king.
On thursday some of the leaders i met were harriet tubman, and jim Henson harriet tubman is good because she helped slaves.
Some of the people I met on Thursday were Al Capone,and George Washington. I found George Washington interesting because he was the first president of the United States. I like that his face is on the $1.00 bill. His greatest challenge was fighting England so we could be free.
The most interesting person I met was Joseph Flitton, who was Henrik Sedin. what was interesting about him was that he had older brothers.
I met Mark Warawa, Bobby Ore and Al Capone. The most interesting person I met was Al Capone because I don't see how he was a leader, except that he was a leader of crime, a gangster and did a lot of smuggling but he did give some of the money to charity, which is hard to believe.
Some of the people I met in class today were Terry Fox, Gandhi, Kim Jong Il, Katy Perry, Michael Jackson. The most interesting person I met was J.R.R Tolkien because I am reading The Hobbit.
I learned that J.R.R Tolkien's full name is John Ronald Reuel Tolkien and that he is from england. He also served in the first world war.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
