All of our Young Ambassadors have been working hard towards their creative goals – whether that is writing their first short story, or performing a spoken word poem to an audience! As the programme draws to a close, we’re sharing the amazing progress they’ve made.
I am who I am…
I am who I am because of that trampoline,
the one I’d spend hours on end with my friends.
The one where I’d wonder what it would be like to be those in the sky.
I am who I am because of those houses in the Philippines.
Running in the sun with my cousins and the dog,
ducking under the trees for the bliss of shade.
I am the sugar rush in my Aunt’s house in Spain,
The ‘pinging off the walls’ because of the E numbers.
I am the visits to the hospital for my mum.
The letters she wrote, the corridors to see her.
I am the getting lost in the countryside
And the arriving at the camps first.
I am who I am because of the countless dance shows,
singing performances and piano exams.
I am the tears tumbling down my face for a multitude of reasons,
and the giggles that came after.
I am the stress before every exam and every race
And the relief when they’re over.
I am who I am!
