Rosa Parks
By: James M.
New Jersey, Grade 5



I am nominating this person because she was not afraid. She was also nice and she never gave up. No one could tell her what to do. She had strength inside her and that is why she never gave up. She always believed in herself as I believe in her. She was a smart lady. What she did was brave because black people were not allowed to sit in the front of the bus back then. If they did sit in the front then they would die. She was a considerate person and if she did not do what she did then, right now only whites can sit in the front and black people would have to sit in the back of the bus. This is why I nominated Rosa Parks.
