Info-graphic

I did my ever first info-graphic and truth to be told, it wasn’t as bad as I initially thought it would be!

Info-graphic (noun): visual representations pertaining graphs, charts, diagrams in which information can be understood through minimal text.

Canva is one of many useful web/apps for any kind of design, and it offers free templates and photos. It was recommended, so I decided to choose Canva as my go-to designing web/app for my first infographic. And I’ll be honest, I wasn’t disappointed.

But not everything went easily and smoothly since one of the aspects of an info-graphic was to limit the amount of text and relay information through graphics while the reader would receive the same amount of information.  One of the difficulties I had was deciding what to put in and take out from my info-graphic, which in time was figured out.

Without further ado, feel free to skim my info-graphic down below!

My Summer!

This was one of THE best summers and it was so much fun. I went to South Africa and went to see my grandparents… and my cat… and my cousins.

We planned to go to Hole-in-the-wall for the weekend just after we spent a week in South Africa (-just in case you don’t know what Hole-in-the-wall is, it is near the water and on the beach). Hole-in-the-wall has a long wide stream of water where we can swim, and when we were there, I did not really swim but rather I ate some of the picnic food. It was great! (I don’t want to tell what it was or you’ll be hungry.)

Another Blog Post About Wai Yan… Again (Updated)

Hey guys, my name is Wai Yan and I’m from Myanmar. This is a little bit about myself.

I  go to Thalun International School and this is an assignment for computer class. I was born in late 2005 so currently, I’m 12 years old and am in the 7th grade. I like a lot of stuff like playing games, reading books and watching videos. At school, my favorite subjects are Science, History and Geography. I live in Yangon which is the biggest city in Myanmar. I’m also interested in watching YouTube or Movies in my free time. My favorite movie is probably Avengers: Infinity War. I have a lot more favorites but that’s what’s off the top of my head.

Meet Grade 5: Introductions

Priscilla

Hey! My name is Priscilla and I love to take pictures of animals like my dog. I also like to edit pictures. I love drinking my favorite drinks and I love dogs!  I want to learn how to use Photoshop or how to do a fan sign. A fan sign is way of drawing digitally. I also love to use my phone.

Hanging out with my best friends, siblings or cousins are also one of the things I love to do. I was born on August 31st 2007 and my favorite color is blue for now.

The reason I chose this picture is because I like to use my phone and laptop while photographing/editing. And also to drink a really good drink I like. I also like to write and scribble things while doing those things too. The bed looks cozy there too and who doesn’t love to snuggle up in a cozy bed?
