Create an avatar and have that character tell about your famous person by sharing the information you found above in the questions.

Customize the character in any way you choose.

You will probably need to create your Voki a second time to be able to include all the information required above. Publish both vokis.

Publish it and embed the code to a new page called VOKI on your Google Portfolio Web site.

Where else could you use a Voki Avatar in your school work?
