Some of our young writers have chosen to use their wrting talent to raise money for charities to make a difference in others lives.
This page is dedicated to all those children who did not let their age deter them from their commitment to help make a difference.
My journey towards creative writing initially was a mean of self expression during a very difficult time. When I was 5, my baby sister Sophia was diagnosed with heart failure at only 10 weeks old. From this point onwards, I have witnessed Sophia’s journey from cardiac intensive care to multiple admissions at hospital.
During this time often when I had difficulty expressing myself verbally, I utilised writing as a tool to explore my feelings for my sister's diagnosis of a life threatening illness and especially during periods of mum’s absence attending prolonged hospital admissions and uncertainty whether Sophia would survive or not.
I often wondered how can I help sick children with heart conditions all over the world and sincerely appreciates the amazing medical care and support Sophia is blessed to access around the clock.
Luckily, my mum enrolled me on the Author in Me creative writing course. It has enabled me to strengthen my confidence, communication, and persuasion skills through the various styles of writing and the use of new and exciting vocabulary. I wrote a story during the course that was turned into a book. I am so happy with my book Sapphire star’s Adventures.
I would like to thank Monica and Ekta for inspiring me to be an Author.
I decided to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children by selling my book on Amazon Kindle. So far, I have raised £630.00 for GOSH. You can help me raise more money by buying this book.
