My name is Leah Marshall and I want to be a fish breeder when I grow up. In fact, I am already a fish breeder because my catfish just had kittens. I thought my goldfish, Bubbles, was going to have babies but she turned out to be just fat.
I would like to be a fish breeder so that I could make new kinds of fish. I could take a shark and an angelfish and see if they would make a skinny fish with really big teeth of if they would make shark that wouldn't eat people when they went to the beach.
Another reason why I would like to be a fish breeder is so that I could grow fish that tasted better than the fish sticks they serve in the school cafeteria. Yeech! I think I could make fish that taste more like chicken fingers.
But I think they main reason I would like to become a fish breeder is so that I could make goldfish and guppies that would never die. I got really sad when my fish die and so I think other kids get sad too when that happens.
Do fish breeders make bunches of money? That would be good, too.
You came up with a whale of an essay, Leah. I do think you might be helped if you did some more reading about fish.
I am not sure how much money fish breeders make but I know that you would do a good job because you love fish so much.
By the way, Leah, I am not pregnant either.
