1. who is your favorite character, and why you chose her/him?
my favorite character is Dr. larabee, why? because Dr. larabee thats makes akeelah great. And Dr. Larabee teaches akeelah a lot, and not just teaches akeelah, Dr. Larabee also considers akeelah like her daughter. Dr. Larabee also gets a trick to make daniel memorize the words, the trick is daniel memorize while jumping rope, this is funny right? But Akeelah uses this trick when spellin bee contest.
