    “Hero Narrative”

    In the Movie Akheela and the Bee I will beexplaining why I chose her as a hero, Akheela was considered a hero because of the challenges she needed to overcome, Akheela come from Crenshaw and worked her way up to Woodland Hills, Threw this video not only did Akheela look great to her community but she also looked great to the government officals also can learn by watching this film.

    Another reason why I had chosen Akheela as a hero because This 11 year old girl was able to unite a community and brought them closer together, this 11 year old girl who was afraid of being smart of being a book worm around her friends and classmates and was teased had eventually was able to gather help from everyone around her.

    In fact the community became as if it was a family, It didnt matter what race or background, that the only goal was to help akheela win the Spelling Bee and support her all the way. Next, the coach her school has convinced into helping has his own issues and to overcome then as when Akheela had done so.

    And then there’s Akheela’s Mother who doesn’t have the time or energy to devote to her daughter because she is trying to keep Akheela’s brother out of trouble, which is holding down her job.That’s the reason why I choose Akheela, Because she never gave up, That she show’s us how tough it is for all kids to balance family, friendships, identity, education, and talent.

    The Hero I Chose For Mr Character is Mr.Larabee Because Through Out The Movie He Coached Akleeah and Never Gave Up Her , Always Was On Her About Spelling Words. He Had Faith in Her That She will Make it To The National Spelling Bee And She did . Akeelah Relates To What Mr.Larabee Went Through . Mr.Larabee Had Lost a Daughter And Akeelah Reminds Him Of Her . The Reason Why I Chose Mr.Larabee Was Because He Made it To The National Spelling Bee And He Made it 2nd Place And Akeelah Has Made it To First , Which is Her First Time Auditioning For The National Spelling .

    My Heroic Character’s Obstacle Was Teaching a Young Girl 5,000 Words That Had Been Missed Spelled From The Last Spelling Bee . Akeelah Would Go To Mr.Larabee’s House To Be Coached , He Actually Gave Her a Jump Rope Which Was His Daughters , To Have Some Type Of Rhythm To Spell Words Which She Actually Used During The National Spelling Bee .Mr.Larabee Had Taught Akleeah Everything He Had To Teach And Know Has Made The Top 10 To Go To D.C For The National Spelling Bee.

    The Character That i Chose is Special To Me Because He Has Talent , and He Has Used it To Teach Akleeah How To Get Better At Spelling Words And Being Confident . Now Akleeah Has Grown From it And Accomplished Her Goal and is Proud Of Herself For Her Hard Works . Hard Works Really Do Pay Off at The End.

  26. Anna Marie Zavala

    My character, is Dr,Larabee because i think he made Akelaah have confidence in herself to the the national spelling bee.The reason why i think Dr,Larabee is a hero because when he was little he had won the same competition as Akelaah.

    So Dr,Larabee has alot of experience to teach Akelaah.Akelaah has won because of Dr,Larabee Training.The way he helped Akelaah he made her read alot of books and flashcards and has did destractions while she was reading so her concetration would get better when she was up on the stage and if she get nervous she would know how to get out of the situtation.

    Akelaah sucessfully had won the national spelling beebecause of her own self and Dr,Larabee .they had accomplished what there goal was.

    My character, Dr. Larabee acts heroically Dr. Larabee because, if it wasn’t for him Akeelah would have never entered the district spelling bee and win to go for regionals and win to go to the national spelling bee.

  35. Jessie 3rd Period

    My character, Akeelah, acts heroically. She wants to accomplish what she wants, which is winning the national spelling bee. She’s a very confidence girl because it takes confidence to spell in front of many people. She knows that if she studies, she knows she could win.

    This is an example of how my character, Akeelah, acts heroically because she studied day and night hoping she’s going to win the spelling bee. She studies many words because she knows many people has failed many words in the national spelling bee.

    She then gets coached by a very great person, Dr Larabee. Eventually, Dr. Larabee lets her on her own to study. After, Akeelah asks many people like family members to help her study to win the national spelling bee. After a hard work of studying and the help of her coaches, she knew it paid off because she placed first in the national spelling bee.

    she gets caught by her mom and they have arguement so mom finally lets her go. then her mom and Dr.Larabee agree to her participate in the spelling bee. Dr.Larabee said you’re on your own. Georgia is mad.
    so she got to the national spelling bee, spelling words. And she tie with doing the national spelling.

  37. Teralyn E. Vejmola

    “My character Dr. Lairabee is the hero in my opinion because he helps Akeelah study for the spelling bee so she can win. Instead of her winning she desided to get a tie so Dylans dad would not be so called “pissed”. Dr. Lairabee is also a hero because he staid strong after his daughter passed away from a sickness and after his wife devorced him. He felt like he had nothing in life.”

    “Javier is a hero too because when she met him he was super nice and i guess from that moment he knew he liked her. after the 1st bee Javier invited her to come study at his school so she went and studyed with him and a few others from the bee. When she went to his school and study, Javier invited her to his party. She went to his party and Javier kissed her cheak! “

  38. javante per3

    My character Akeelah acts heroically because she went through alot in her life such as, bullying,her dad died,and she has low self-esteem. Also, she is very smart and she loves to spell. Akeelah went to crenshaw middle school and she hated the school. Everybody at the school messed with her because she loved to spell and they thought she was a nerd. This is an example of how my character,Akeelah , acts heroically

  39. Jaquan

    My character Mr.Larabee demonstrates heroism because he know what the old winning words are and he can teach her how to spell it and what they mean. I also pick Mr.Larabee because he had won a couple of spelling bee his self. My characters main obstacle to be heroic is that he is a good teacher and he had help Akeelah win the district spelling bee because of his coach skill. The point of the flim that made Mr.Larabee show herosim is when he said he will help Akeelah win the spelling bee. The reason why i think Mr.Larabee is so special is he can help you achieve in life and also help you become a winner.

  40. Glenn Ducksworth

    mom and Dr.Larabee agree to let her Particpate thing Dr.Larabee say you you’re your own. Georgia is mad.
