My best friend is a lot of things: smart, athletic, light-hearted, and so much more. But the best thing about her is her humility. In the nine years that I’ve known her, I’ve never heard her brag about her incredible high jump skills or the superhuman grades she seems to achieve effortlessly. I’m incredibly lucky to be able to call her my best friend.

My best friend would prefer if I didn’t mention her name as she is quite shy, but she is such an interesting person. We’re very close, but we do fight around three times a day at school. Once we couldn’t decide what to eat for lunch and ended up arguing for 15 minutes. But she is an otherwise very easy-going and caring friend, and we don’t stay mad at each other for long. I hope she doesn’t see this page, otherwise she might get angry at me!

My BFF’s name is Niyati Jhaveri. Not only is she helpful, but also understanding. I’ve known Niyati since I was one year old, and she’s now a very important part of my life. She is very caring towards me, and when she’s around, she always lightens up everyone’s mood. She’s also one of the most considerate and supportive people I know.

My BFF, Jason, is 11 years old. We like to create comics together during recess and always have a lot of fun. I often invite him to hang out at my house over the school holidays. When we’re apart, we will message each other to keep each other updated on our lives.

My best friend Jerry always has a sunny smile on his face. He is able to calm me down when I am worrying about my exam results, and comforts me when I’m sad. He’s always stood by me, during the good times and bad.
