On Wednesday the 31. of October, students in Norway had an international day. On this day, every year, we go around from classroom to classroom to understand different situations around the world and why we need to help them the next day on the OD-day. This year the main cause was the Israel and Palestine conflict.
In class today, we watched a movie called Girl Rising. It was about the benefits of educating girls. The film introduced us to nine girls. Nine powerful, brave and mentally strong girls who were the start of something new. Something greater than we have seen before. The girl that inspired me most was a girl named Ruksana.

Since 2000, the progress made for universal primary education has been immense. This has been proven by the numbers in the article. For instance, we can see that in developing regions reached 91% in 2015, even the worldwide number of children out of school has dropped by almost a half. In addition, more girls than ever before are in school and are increasing their literacy.
There are many factors that have an impact on who can have clean drinking water. This can for example effect women and their education and women’s lives in major ways. In this blog post, I will explain and discuss the connections that are made such, as economics for further education for girls and lack of water to specifically women, and their importance.
Today in our class we worked on the UN sustainable development goals. We went through the different goals and later had to figure out which ones we thought are most important to us.
The goals I would like to work more towards and that I find intriguing are gender equality and climate change.
You have most likely heard of The suite life of Zack and Cody, but today ill be telling my story.
My name is Asya Nikolova. I am currently 16 years old, although I am turning 17 on the September 22nd. I love playing games, being social, reading, writing and painting. The best thing I know is sleep, it can really help me overcome hard times. The worst thing I know of is people who choose to be negative.
I come from a small town in Northern Bulgaria called Ruse. Ruse is located on the border between Bulgaria and Romania. Even though it’s a small city, it has many things to offer which might include:
- Good food
- Old days
Although Ruse may be in 2018 like the rest of the world, it lays a little behind on trends that currently are going around.
I currently live in a town just on the coast of Norway called Aalesund. It has many tourists and lots of history just like my hometown! Aalesund offers:
- Help to tourists (We are still waiting for Esteban to accept our job offer)
- Great views (fjellstua)
- Shy people
Bad bus times
This blog is a project created by my International English course at Fagerlia High school. This basically means most of my post will be associated with what I do in class.
I hope you have learnt a bit more about me and my towns. I would love if you join me on this wild ride through the Hotel floors. (except the lobby, no running in the lobby.)
