After Barista my friends and I went to the street and we saw this man named Andrew Patterson and he works as a radio D.J. He was talking about what we might do in the future.
After he had a little talk he showed us a video of a college kid named Iavana that went to Manurewa college. He was talking about how he wasn’t very good at college and he didn’t know what he was good at and then he found out that he was good at talking and doing speeches. He was quite funny. Iavana got to speak for a lot of people and company’s and he could talk really fast. I thought that was quite impressive.
As soon as the video finished the man Andrew Patterson came back up and introduced a man that used to work on the show “ What Now” and his name is Anthony Samuels. He was telling us about how he is learning maori. There was a word he told us in maori it was “ you are amazing”. Anthony Samuels showed us some funny photos of him when he was on what now and he told us a funny story about a man and a ferret.
Then there was a man named Paula and he said he was a “good swimmer” but the most important speech he gave us was “ i’m not scared of you not succeeding but i’m scared that you're not going to try. Paula was another one that was so funny. Paula told us a story of when he was our age i was a story about when he almost died swimming in a pool. When Paula was our age 12 and 13 they had a pool at their school and he was very tall and his school mates were really small so he told us that he always use to run in the water because he could touch the ground, so he use to go into competitions and one day they were competing in an olympic size pool and he didn’t know how big the pool was so he went to walk and he couldn’t touch the floor and he was drowning.
And there were heaps of people that were so inspirational. When they all finished their own speeches

Good friends are people who are by your side 24.7. They are nice and caring they help and the defend you from the people who aren't nice friends. Some people don't know what a good friendship is. A good friendship is when you are a nice person you are to your friends, well it doesn't have to be you friend you need to be nice too it can be anyone in need of a friendly talk.
So there is a girl named Mary, imagine her with all of her friends. They're playing, laughing and having fun because her friends are nice to her and they are real friends to one another. Then imagine a girl named Ashlee when she is with her friends she does not laugh play and she does not have a smile on her face, she is like that because her friends are not nice to her and that is what I am trying to tell you.
When you have nice friends in school or out of school it will make your life even easier. And did you know that having good friends can help you bond with other people and it can even help you grow a bigger bond with your family too. When you come to think of it you can have quite a good bond with your friends and that is very special.
A lot of people become friends when they are baby’s then it is pre-school and some people are still friends and then it is kindergarten and it just keeps going on and on and some friendships go on until they one of them are very old. I would love to have friends that are so special like some people with a friendship and relationship that never stops. Well yeah some people fight but sometimes that brings our relationship closer.
So do you understand now what a good friendship is. And if you can't find a good friends then just keep on looking for the right friend remember there are millions of nice people around that will want to be you friend. Remember that good friends are the ones who can put a smile on your face. Here is a little tip, find the ones who stay by your side 24.7 there the special kind of friend that not a lot of people have.
