My ambition is to be a politician. First I want to win an election. I’ll win the election when lots and lots and lots of people vote for me.
I want to be a politician because I want to help other people. I want to give speeches at PWTC. PWTC is Putra World Trade Centre. I want to speak at the United Nations meetings. I also like to meet lots and lots of people.
I have to study hard because I want to be a smart politician. I want to go to lots of important meetings. I want to make the world clean so that there won’t be too much floods, landslide and other disasters. I want the world to be peaceful and no more wars like the war in Palestine. War is a disaster. Lots of people die. Lots of houses destroyed and the place will be full of trash and it can cause a flood. Animals and plants will die too. So we can’t eat meat,vegetables and fruits.
