My Friend Veipune Sarah
In life, many friends come and go, and it is hard to decide one of them as the best.

But on the day of our result declaration, I was disappointed because she couldn’t score good percentage. Subsequently, I hesitated to approach her as I thought she would feel bad if I talk about our result. I remained quiet as I sat down, yet surprisingly she turned to me and smiled. Her reaction showed no sign of disappointment although I thought she was upset. She said that, being upset wouldn’t be any help, however being positive she can do it better in our next quarter. I was really appreciated by hearing her words. Then we started to have fun together again, hence that made me realized she has a positive attitude.
