When you watch TV or read the newspapers, you get the impression that everybody wants to be a celebrity. At our school we decided to do a survey to find out if that’s true. The results were interesting.
We asked the question â??Would you like to be famous ?â?. 69% of the 16 year olds in our school said â??Noâ?, 30% said â??Yesâ?, and 1% said they didn’t know.
Of the 30% who said they wanted to be famous, most said they wanted to be famous for helping a good cause. Some said they wanted to be famous musicians, singer, actors, on sports people. Then came other answers like authors, scientists, business men and women, doctors or journalists. Only 1 % wanted to be famous politicians.
Now we want to know about you. Do you want to be famous ? If the answer is â??yesâ?, what would you like to be famous for ? If the answer is â??noâ?, why not ?
