1: Maymunah Abu Nayyah was a nice, neat, and natural girl. She had dreams of being on top of the world!
2: The Spelling Bee is what she dreamed of every day. Her heart screamed to be there someday.
3: "You are a blooming flower, my child." her father said. "You are as bright as a shining star!"
4: " I will go places!" Maymunah said. She wanted to be great like Einstein.
5: ...And to the spelling be she made it. As she approached the microphone, she spelled one word wrong, individuality. "Boo! Boo!" the crowd said
6: But things went wrong when her country found out. "No, No, No!" people would shout. They shouted hurtful things to her as she came home.
7: "We will be back!" her father said. "We will be more prepared!" her father said. "We will triumph!" her father said.
