But one thing's for sure, she knows she s a good writer so she s determined to win the school essay competition, where students have been asked to write essays with the title How I Spent my Summer. 18 quick steps 4 How I Spent my Summer by Kate Anderson Until this summer, my summers always used to be the same. My twin brothers would always go to a sports camp and I used to stay at home and hang out with my friends. But this year, all my friends went away, and one evening, as I was surfing the Net, I found out about an amazing summer camp called SOCAA. It's for people interested in filmmaking, acting and dance. I want to become a film director so I asked my parents if I could go. They immediately said yes. In fact, they agreed so quickly, I thought something was suspicious. Little did I know what was going to happen at the camp... Everything was fantastic at SOCAA. The most exciting part was during the last week, when we all made our own films. Other teens who were learning acting and dance acted in our films. You'll never believe who was in my cast: my brother Rob! It turned out that he was learning how to dance and act, but he didn't want other people to know so he told everyone he was going to a sports camp. He thought it was embarrassing. I thought it was the coolest thing ever! So, in the end, we made a film together. Rob's actually a really great dancer, and I have to admit, it was a lot of fun telling him what to do all the time! The best part is that now we can talk to each other about our dreams and ambitions. We never used to have so much in common!
