Present your work in a chart like the one below: ITEM Victoria Falls Bungee Jump T-Shirt My Celtic-knot ring WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT ME / WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO ME I did a bungee jump at Victoria Falls and it was awesome! I don t wear it to show off but at the same time I feel proud to have done it because I was so scared before jumping! The ring was given to me by my Grandma when we left Ireland.
