I’m super excited today! Mr. Wilson, our English teacher, gave us an essay assignment on anything to do with ancient Egypt. Everyone will probably write about the pyramids, but I think it will be more interesting to write about Cleopatra. She was a very famous pharaoh, which basically means that she was the queen of Egypt. She knew how to speak nine different languages, which I think is great because it made her a better queen. She was also a very clever businesswoman. She helped make her country rich and powerful when she ruled it. I read that she even owned a perfume factory. Maybe all the cool things I’m learning about Cleopatra will help me be a good business person too. Which reminds me, Yajna ordered two new pencils from me today and I have to start decorating them.
