The February 2020 student of the month is Anelda Bezuidenhout, a sophomore who lives in South Africa and enjoys working with robotics. Anelda was nominated to receive this month’s honor by her English teacher, Linda Kraft.
“Anelda is a very conscientious student who seeks out clear understanding of lessons, is courteous when we talk, and takes constructive criticism well,” wrote Mrs. Kraft.
My AOA Story
I have been a student at Alpha Omega Academy for a little longer than two years. We discovered AOA when my mother was looking for an online school. She wanted to ensure that I receive the best education that I possibly can.
Why I Love AOA
I enjoy online learning because I can do my schoolwork at any time and at any place. I can also work on the weekend and work far ahead, which I would not be allowed or able to do in a normal school.
My Favorite Subject
My favorite subject is history. I find it very interesting to learn about all of the events that shaped a nation into what it is today. I also find it interesting to learn about the mistakes and wise decisions that people made so that I can learn from them.
I have an older sister and a younger brother. I enjoy playing computer games with my brother, and I enjoy singing and dancing with my sister.
My Life in South Africa
I enjoy living in South Africa because we have a marvelous history, wonderful weather, and many landforms and animals that are not found naturally anywhere else on Earth.
I enjoy building robotic models, especially if they are solar powered. I am very proud of making a robotic model only with experimentation and errors until it worked like it should. I spend my free time in a variety of ways, depending on the mood that I am in. I may read, write, draw, color, build a puzzle, or play games. I like to play strategic war and settlement games usually set in the past.
My Dream Job
If I could have any job, then I would be a game designer. This is because there are so many games in the world, but not all of them are exactly the games that you want or had in mind. Therefore, I would design games that fit a person’s description of the game that they would like to play.
My Words of Wisdom
I sometimes don’t want or feel like doing a quiz or test, but I know I have to do it. So, I prepare for it and do it to the best of my ability. A difficult task won’t just disappear into thin air, so you must calm yourself, take a deep breath, and then pour all of your effort into it. Once you have finished the task, it will be as if a large weight has been taken off your shoulders.
