By Alison Salman Once, there was a girl named Melanie who wanted to do a science project. She had a friend, named Fortune, who wasn’t so smart. And a friend, named Raquel, who was extremely smart but was less friends with her. She decided to do it with Raquel. Melanie was a smart girl but she wanted to see Raquel’s thought before she said hers. After Raquel said her thought, Melanie liked them. So, she thought that she doesn’t need to say hers. Raquel wanted to hear Melanie’s thought but, after Melanie said it, Raquel liked her thoughts. They took a little bit of Melanie’s ideas and a little bit of Raquel’s ideas and made it into one idea. This is using your talents wisely.
