A sweet deal

I would like to be Charlie from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I just love chocolate, and in the story, Charlie ends up very rich after “winning” the chocolate factory. Then I would have enough chocolates to share with my friends without having to worry about where my next piece of candy would come from.

Charlie is also a brave kid, because he overcomes a lot of challenges and finally wins. I would like to have his personality.

No more homework

Peter Pan, who is a cheerful young boy who can fly and never grows up. Then I would be able to play with my friends every day and not worry about my homework. I don’t want to be an adult because I would have to work hard to earn money. This is not the life I want.

Potter magic

Harry Potter would be a good choice. I would use my magical powers to help people and save the Earth. Also, I would be able to fly anywhere I wanted, which would be a dream come true. I really want to be a smart and brave boy like Harry Potter.

Super-villain with style

Forget heroes or saints. I would go for my personal favourite – the Joker. He may be a lunatic, but he has good insight into the real world. Unlike heroes, he doesn’t fight darkness, he embraces it, and that’s something we all need to learn from him.

Plus he’s a super-villain with style! I think he’s pretty hot and has a great personality. I just hope I’d have my very own purple Lamborghini.

A perfect choice

Who else but Tony from Iron Man? I love his suit so much. It is cool and powerful, and it lets you fly everywhere you want. Also, Tony has a lot of money, so I’d share it with my parents and friends. We would all have a wonderful time. That’s what I would call a perfect life.

Robotic wonder

Linh Cinder, the cyborg heroine in The Lunar Chronicles. She is extremely clever and brave, and has survived at least two assassination attempts. Also, it would be nice to know what it feels like having a lie-detector under my eyelid, a computer implanted inside my brain, and not being able to blush – or cry.

Hermione rocks!

Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series! From using magic to being the top student in class to being the

sassy know-it-all, she’s become the kind of woman every girl dreams of being one day. Being strong, wise, loyal and beautiful, I wouldn’t mind living my life as Hermione. I tell you, she ROCKS!

Hopping along

I would go for the bunny Judy Hopps in Zootopia. She is a brave detective, and the first rabbit to become a police officer. Later, she solves a mysterious case and becomes famous.

Eternal life

Mickey Mouse, because I could enjoy a carefree life without any worries. I could live in a large and comfortable house, with an endless supply of delicious food, and play with a bunch of friends such as Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy. Also, I could live forever!

Asher Lam, 13, TWGHs Wong Fut Nam Secondary School

Cold hands, warm heart

My pick is Elsa from the movie Frozen. Global warming is a big problem now. Therefore, Elsa could bring down the temperatures significantly and create more ice. Also, people in Hong Kong would live in ice buildings instead of buying a flat for a “crazy” price. I believe as Elsa, I could bring lots of benefits to mankind.
