I think hard-working is the character trait that best describes Nya. I think this because every chapter Nya would go and get water for her family which required lots of work because to get water she would have to walk hours and hours just to get very little water and the water was also dirty but she didn't stop and that's a lot of work so shes very hard-working.
I think strong describes Salva because Salva had to witness many deaths but he didn't let their deaths hold him down. Also he had to go through deserts and he didn't stop and that requires a lot of strength so that's why i think strong would fit Salva.
I think that determined would fit me. I think this because when I want something I always try for it and wont stop till i get because i am determined so thats why i think determined would fit me.
Yes. Nya is hard-working. I also said that Salva is strong. You need to fix your capitalization in the last paragraph. (Why is this a non-example?)
I agree that Nya is hard-working. Having to walk for hours a day would be very difficult, especially having to carry large full containers on her head. I also think it would be hard to sit for a long time waiting for your gourd to fill during the dry season. ~David K.
Nya is hard working. Nya has to walk for a good length and had to carry a big plastic container. Nya walked in the hot blazing sun and walk through thorns. Nya had to fill the big plastic container up with water, which makes the container heavier and then Nya has to take the water back to her family.
Salva is lonely. Salva had to run from home and lost his parents. Then he finds a old lady, but the old lady leaves because the war was getting close so Salva had to join a group. In the group Salva finds a friend and then finds his uncle, but his friend gets eaten by a lion. Then the group got robbed and the robbers killed Salva's uncle.
I am kind. I have held doors for elders and held a persons crutches when he needed to sit for a second. this shows I am kind because I am helping people that could need help.
I Agree that Nya is hard working and that Salva is lonely. Good job.
This first word I thought of to describe Salva was "strong" because he went through so much and never gave up. I never stopped to think about how lonely he must have really been. You have some good examples to support how lonely he was. It seems like he was always getting left behind. ~Leslie W.
