‘Be humble’ Essay by 9 year old Bookosmian from Kolkata
My friend Shanvi used to be very humble since we started school. Sometimes I was very proud. Even if I got a new pencil, I would show it off.
Once during the school sports, my friend won a medal for her house and yet remained down to earth. She was very submissive even when she was being praised for her achievement. One day our class teacher made an announcement that there would be a violin musical competition. We all became very excited about it. My friend Shanvi was very good at playing violin. She helped me and other girls to practice for the competition after school and during recess. Finally the day came and we all played our best piece. Our band was well synchronized. All the teachers, guests, and others appreciated our hard work. Shanvi was very polite. I felt very proud of my self.
