Speaking of an historical figure, I want to talk about Hua Mulan, who is described in a famous Chinese poem known as the Ballad（歌谣）of Mulan.
During the Northern Wei dynasty, Mulan’s father received an order to join the imperial army, but he was too old and sick to fight anymore. The whole family started to worry about him because they knew that the refusal to the order would bring punishment upon the entire family. And Mulan’s little brother could serve as a substitute, but he was much too young. To protect her father and her family, Mulan decided to join the army for her father. Disguised（伪装）as a man, she distinguished herself in battle as a brave warrior and a clever strategist.
Many years later, the battle was over. In view of her military exploit（功绩）, the Khan（可汗）of Northern dynasty offered Mulan a high official position, but she turned down the position in order to return to her family. She made up after coming back home. When her former comrades（伙伴）visited her at home, they were shocked to see her dressed as a woman.
Hua Mulan, as a well-known Chinese historical figure, has been highly respected as a filial（孝顺的）daughter by the Chinese people for hundreds of years. She impressed me a lot not only because of her personality, but also because of the things I learned from her. She broke the traditional view and pursued individuality. She is legendary!
In 1998, her story was adapted for an animated cartoon in the United States. And now she is famous all over the world.
A film character
Describe a film character.

who he/she is
what kind of role he/she plays
why you love him/her
and explain why you think he/she is special.
Can''t remember where I once read "If you have love, you don''t need to have anything else, but if you don''t have it, it doesn''t matter whatever else you have!" Actually, I had watched millions of romance films, but my favorite one is Titanic. I am really big fan of it, since it is not only sensational but also classic! And my favorite character is Jack.
Jack was an artist and was living for drawing in Titanic. He unexpectedly won a ticket over a poker game and met Rose on the ship who was engaged to a rich royalty. They instantly fell in love. Unfortunately, he finally died in a shipwreck. Honestly speaking, I had watched this film for several times in a row, but I could learn something new when I watch it. The film plots are really thought-provoking, and until now, I can still remember the words that Jack told Rose right before he died: "Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me. It brought me to you, and I''m thankful you must...you must... do me this honor. Promise me that you will survive, that you won''t give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me, now, Rose, and never let go of that promise, never let go."And Rose said in a shivering（颤抖的）and crying voice, "I''ll never let go, Jack. I''ll never let go, I will never let it go, I promise."
I am always all tears every time when I watch it. I really love the character Jack, not only because of those beautiful words he said, but also because of his personality and his great love to Rose. So now I see why people are always saying, "Love can’t be seen, can’t be heard, but can be felt by heart."
A wild animal

and explain why you love this wild animal.
Talking about a wild animal, I want to talk about polar bears.
Living in the Arctic, polar bears are normally up to 10 feet long and weighs about 1700 pounds. Their huge, flat and oar-like front feet make them strong swimmer. They can paddle with its front feet and use their hind feet as rudders. Polar bears have spotlessly white fur, cute giant body and little black eyes which make them look even more adorable.
Instead of staying in one place, they normally travel across the snow looking for food like fish or seals. Unfortunately, over the past several decades, carbon dioxide and industrial pollution has caused severe global warming, which has made the ice in the Arctic melt at an extremely fast speed. Polar bears are now facing horrifying extinction.
I saw a PSA (Public Service Advertisement) on TV the other day. It opens with two polar bear standing on a thin chunk of floating ice looking at the sky desperately. Their home the Arctic is melting because of global warming. Their helpless look can be seen through their eyes straight away. The PSA ends with the voice-over from two little kids,” Polar bears live in Arctic on the ice, but the ice is melting because of global warming. Some bears have to swim so far that they drowned. Several decades later, they could be gone. Grown-ups should do something right now. Please help them!”
For the very first time in my life, I was shocked. I found that little kids’ voice was so powerful and inspirational. I think now it is time for us to do whatever it takes to save polar bears and prevent them from extinction.
