Top 10: What habits did you grow out of as you got older?

Who do you relate to?

I feel I’m most like Anne of Green Gables. Anne Shirley is a girl who loves nature. I, too, love spending time in the countryside. I am comfortable with being alone and can gaze at even a tiny flower for a long time, or let the natural wonders completely absorb my attention.

Anne is easily satisfied, and so am I. Even a simple picnic could make me very happy.

Undoubtedly I’m like Simba, from The Lion King. That’s because I think I can do everything by myself, I am naughty, I like to play, and I know I am very handsome like him.

He is also very good to his parents, and one day, Simba will be king of the grasslands, just like I will be the king of my life

Doraemon, because I always help my friends in need. What’s more, I can think out of the box and provide some new solutions to whatever problems I face.

What would you do if you were US President?

Bing Bong from the 2015 film Inside Out. He is happy most of the time, but if he gets into trouble, he will feel very sad and can’t control his emotions. However, he also comes up with some pretty good ideas when he’s feeling down.I am just like him.

Siu Chun-hong, 12, Maryknoll Fathers’ School

I am most like Moana, the character from the Disney movie of the same name. We are both optimistic, caring and dedicated.

But sometimes we are also very stubborn and want to try new things. I think we have similar personalities.

Yeung Sze-yan, 16, Tsuen Wan Public Ho Chuen Yiu Memorial College

The Hulk from the Marvel universe. I am impatient and I become angry easily. When it happens, I smash whatever is near me. In that moment, I feel I could suddenly change into The Incredible Hulk!

What question should people just stop asking you?

I’m just like Little Red Riding Hood. I think I trust people too much and never doubt what they say. Little Red Riding Hood believed in the werewolf dressed as her grandma, and I’d probably do the same. Her sweet smile is similar to mine and she faces the unknown in a positive manner.

Noki Wong, 15, Fung Kai No.1 Secondary School

Eeyore, the character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne. He is a very gloomy, depressed donkey. He is always tired and is much slower than the other characters, which is how I actually feel.

However, the other characters still enjoy being friends with him. They always invite him on their adventures, just as my friends accept me with open arms and help me through sad times.

Christine McPherson in the 2017 film Lady Bird. We teenagers may be cynical and ignore people we should treasure. Her story strikes a chord with me and really inspires me.

Mr Bean, because I like to do funny, silly things to make other people happy.

Sometimes my friends are stressed out by their school work, so I try to tell jokes to cheer them up.

Gordon Hung Tsun-ming, 14, Henrietta Secondary School
