Author's Note This story is about Norberto Geyerhahn. He is about 60, and this happened on the day of the 2010 election. Dilma is the current president of Brazil and she is 52 years old. He is not against woman presidents even thought it sounds like it in my text. Dilma has a history of people not liking her but after the last president helped her she won.

I learnt a lot from this project. One of the many things I learnt was that I have many family members I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about. I think that doing this project was important because we got to know about our family history.I really enjoyed making the magazine because it was really fun to decorate something lots of people will see. I had to do this magazine in two days, that was challenging, but I tried to spend my free time doing it. I thing I am so much better at writing since my first pice. I would say to students next year to enjoy as much as they can and take notes as they go. That will help a lot.
