Jamie Curry report. Term three week three

          I am blogging this for a famous person report.
           I am learning to write a report.

        Success Criteria (based on Kid speak progressions)

  • beginning, middle and end (structure)
  • topic words (vocabulary)
  • different sentence beginnings (sentence formation)
  • added detail to my ideas (content and ideas)
  • punctuation that helps the reader (punctuation)
  • my goal is spelling.

Jamie Curry
Introduction- Who is she?
Jamie Curry is a popular teenager and you-tuber. She is self deprecating  and not afraid to make fun of herself.  Why is she famous? It all started one afternoon at soccer practice. Her friends convinced her to make a Facebook account to
become famous. Jamie is very silly and quirky on the videos that she makes to go on her Facebook page. She has a huge fan base  on Facebook and on her YouTube account.

Early life - her life
Jamie is a very famous actress in New Zealand. She lives in rural Taradale.
Its good that  Jamie plays soccer because she needs to get out more and play and not just stay on her computer.  
YouTube fame
Her YouTube account has sixty thousand subscribers.  How did she get this much subscribers? Jamie got them from her videos. Her self deprecation gets the viewer to subscribe to her channel. Jamie has gone from sixty thousand  subscribers to seven million subscribers a week!!! Her  channel is Jamie's World. She struggles to keep up with fan mail. She takes up two hours of her time cleaning her inbox.
Jamie did not expect so many likes. Jamie was expecting only one hundred likes but she was wrong!

Other successes

Jamie Curry was a New Zealander of the year finalist. She is also collaborating with Jamie McDell and a boy band called M.A.D. She has been in a music video
called The girl  next door.

Jamie’s heart is set on career in Hollywood when she gets older and she is well on her way to achieving this goal.
