Brain Game 4.11.2010

November 4, 2010

the brain game


This week’s question:

“Who would you like to interview?”

Elizabeth Pong, 14, St Stephen’s Girls’ College

It would be Anna Wintour, who has been the editorin-chief of American fashion magazine Vogue since 1988. Journalism is in her blood. Her parents were editors and her great-great-greatgrandmother was a novelist. Wintour, 61, has inspired films and TV shows. Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada and Fey Sommers in Ugly Betty were all said to be based on her. Anna could give useful advice to teenagers who wish to become journalists or novelists. I am sure interviewing her would be a challenging yet remarkable experience that would widen my horizons

Melody Lam, 14, POCA Wong Siu Ching Secondary School 

I’m sure everyone knows Osama Bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks in America. He is such a mysterious and influential person. For some, he is a legend, for others, he is a murderer. Through the interview, I would like to know what he is actually thinking. I don’t think anybody has any idea. I would ask him: How did you feel after the 9/11 attacks? How were you able to evade capture and live in Afghanistan for so long? Don’t you feel lonely? As you are a wanted man, do you have any friends you can trust? Bin Laden has killed thousands of people and ruined the trust between nations. I would like to meet him and figure out what is in his mind.

Balwinder Singh, 15, Delia Memorial School (Hip Wo)

It would be Dan Brown, the author of The Da Vinci Code, because he is such a creative person. The book was a best-seller, with unexpected twists and turns, and kept the reader guessing until the end. Dan is a good choice for an interview because he can promote reading, particularly about things that make us think deeply. He can inspire students to read more and improve their English, while boosting their creativity in the process.

Christy Lai, 15, Ho Fung College

I would like to interview the founder(s) of “Brain Game”. I think it is a great platform for students to exchange ideas on various topics and enhance their English skills. I would like to know how the Young Post staff came up with the idea. Also, the debate topics in Brain Game are very interesting. They seem easy at first but can be difficult when you really think about them. I would like to ask the founders about our previous performances, who their favourite is, and who has good chance of winning this competition.

Alice Leung, 16, Ho Fung College

That person would be American actress and singer-songwriter Selena Gomez. I really like her down-to-earth attitude. Being incredibly famous and successful at such a young age, Selena still respects everyone and is very humble. Selena is also known to be very hardworking and well-behaved. It would be really nice for Young Post readers to get to know her better. They would have a great role model to look up to.

Alexander Chuk, 15, Diocesan Boys’ School

I would like to interview mainland dissident Liu Xiaobo who won this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. It would be good to know how he feels about winning the prestigious award. Liu always believed in political reforms and respect for human rights. He is now in a mainland prison and cannot attend the award ceremony. It would be worthwhile to hear what he has to say about his long struggle for freedom and human rights.

Votes close on Tuesdays at noon.
