Teefa's Blog

My name is Latifah but everyone calls me Teefa for short. I am 10 years old. My mum is from Nigeria and Latifah is an African name meaning 'gentle'. Clothes are really important to me and my friends and we always get the latest fashion.
At school, I get into trouble for talking too much and being bossy. I don't mean to be naughty, but sometimes I get shy and then I talk too much to cover it up.

We're not going to let them close us down!


I am trying to keep quiet today, it is really, really hard. My brother has been tickling me and winding me up all day, and trying to make me scream but I am doing my very best. I am by far the loudest person I know so, believe me, this is a massive challenge but I can do it and more importantly I have to do it because tomorrow, for once in my life, no one is going to complain about how loud my voice is, how bossy I am. Actually, they are going to love me for being loud, they are going to be super happy that they've got some one as bossy as me around, they are actually going to give ME the microphone. That's right, me, Teefa and my big mouth are going to get to make as much noise awe can and we like....because I am going to "give" my big, loud voice to a really important thing..I am going to save the skate park! I am going to use my massive voice to speak to as many people as I can and  together Callum, me, the rest of the Go Givers, the skaters and all of our family, people and friends  speak to every one and get their help to save the skate park! teefa - save something

The council want to close down the skate park, it makes me REALLY, REALLY MAD, but we're going to stop them. We're organising a massive concert at the skate park tomorrow. We're inviting every one we know and it is my job to introduce all the bands and all the dancers and, most importantly, to get every one to listen and put their names on the petition to stop the skate park from being closed down. I can't wait! You see the thing is that the madder I get, the louder I get and I AM REALLY MAD at the council, VERY, VERY CROSS, imagine how loud I am going to be?...So when I get on the stage I am going to really shout and best of all, my auntie Esther says she's going to lend me her megaphone! So when we all walk to the park and then from the park to the council offices I am going to be up there right at the front marching followed by every one and their massive, bright banners shouting into the megaphone. I can't wait! And, guess what? I get to be as BOSSY as I like! Callum said it is really important that there is some one there at the concert making sure that all the bands are ready, the dancers aren't off dancing all over the place and that people work together, so it's my job to give people jobs to do and to organise every one! I can't wait! But do you know what? The people I am going to be most BOSSY with are the council wait till I get the megaphone next to my mouth..I'll make sure they listen and me and my big mouth will make sure that our voice is heard! We will save the skate park! No one is going to close it down!
