Dear Major Peake,
I am writing to you in the hope that you will choose me to go to space. Going into space has been a dream of mine since I was five years old, because am inspired with our different planets. I loved space so much that even my room was decorated with lots of things about space. For example, planets in space, facts about space was on my wall, my room was painted in space colour and other things that is in space. I even have a sticker collection of rocket ships and our beautiful planets.
I am the right person to choose because firstly, I am hardworking, I love science experiment, I am always prepared for everything. I love to speak Russian, am fit and healthy. I am good at managing small spaces last but not the least I learnt been a pilot. That why I think you should choose me because I have what it takes!
I know you might not want to pick me because I am 10 years old but you know what they say you might be small, but you have big powers so pick me.
So please, please, please pick me and you will be amazed if you do. Also I will really appreciate it if you pick me because I would love to work with someone has important and special, which is you so please pretty please pick me.
CHAPTER 3 - Launch day
I have prepared for 2 years for my big moment which is today. When I woke up, I felt so excited and overjoyed because I haven’t been to space before and this is my first time. I was eager and keen to put on my space suit. When I put it on I felt like I was in space already. I was a bit nervous because I didn’t know what space was like, and I didn’t know what to except.
Luckily, my training has prepared me to know how to do things when I get into the rocket, for example how to control the rocket, how to float in the rocket, how to manage small spaces, how to do my science experiment. So I think I don’t need to worry about anything too much.
When I finally heard “321!” I screamed in my mind, but I couldn’t show it, so I just put a big smile on my face to show that am ready for this. I had butterflies in my tummy, that’s how excited I was. Suddenly, I saw that one of my colleague was looking at me so I pretended everything was okay.
I saw the earth disappearing little by little I thought about what that mean it means we were in space. I was delighted wow space is beautiful, I said.
Once we docked on the ISS I was as excited as a footballer who scored lots of goals for is team. I met the people on the ISS and I got a chance to speak Russian to my colleagues. We settled down and I Skype my family at home. I was already missing them can you believe that. It was lovely to be able to see my family before tomorrow.
So diary, today was the best day of my life. I can’t wait for the next day to start experimenting and doing activities about space.
