I yearn to be a great scientist

I am Janithya Risadi. I study in Grade Nine at Gothami Balika Vidyalaya, Colombo. I like to create new things during my leisure time. My ambition is to become a great scientist. I hope to invent astronomical items. I like to observe the night sky and watch star constellations. I observe the sky during the weekends with my telescope and note down my observations. I will study hard and enter the University. I wish my dream will become a reality.

Hope, wish,fantasy….

Call it what you may, everyone dreams of being someone or doing something different when they grow up. Some dream of being astronauts, rocket scientists, space explorers… Some dream of being clowns, comedians and running away to a circus. Still others wish to be lawyers, doctors, cricketers or superstars.

The sky, as they say, is the limit to your dreams… But what’s the fun if you keep it all to yourself? So why not put pen to paper, or finger to keyboard, and share with us what you dream of being, when you grow up? You can mail your dreams, along with your photograph to [email protected] yahoo.com or send it by snailmail to ‘Junior Observer’, No. 35, D.R. Wijewardene Mawatha, Colombo 10.
