This project is called the Champions Project. Within the 8 week course of this project, we had to learn about one famous person. I chose Pele because I found him very inspirational. We spent multiple lessons in both LA and SS working on assignment related to our champion. In LA class, we had to write a journal, 3 Poems, a Nomination letter and do a press conference in our champions role. In SS, we had to make a map of our champion, timeline and Facebook account. In both classes, we had to make a free choice artefact. I designed a Pele Fifa Cover for my Fifa 15 game. We also had to focus on the four key aspects of a champion; resilience, collaboration, creativity and compassion. Pele was resilient throughout his career because he faced many roadblocks, but found ways around. He faced divorce, poverty, injury and money loss which could have concluded his career but it didn’t stop Pele from pursuing his dream. Pele has amazing collaboration skills with his teammates. He was there to support them and his leadership resulted in Brazil winning three World Cups. What makes Pele so divine, is his eye for goal and creativity with the ball. His skills and unexceptional footwork can trouble any defence. Pele is a very kind individual and is compassionate about unfortunate children. He is a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador and travels the world to visit charities and build hospitals. Pele is a very special player.
