Now you know I have an older sister with a disability which she gives me joy when she is riding her horse. Emilia doesn’t speak and only walked when she was 7 years old and still needs her wheelchair for long distance walking. She has taught me you can do anything in life.
I will fly, to fly is my passion.
I will fly, to be a pilot is my dream.
I will fly around the world.
I will fly across the seven seas.
I will fly through many sunsets and sunrises.
I will fly through fluffy clouds and the blue sky.
I will fly through the starry night in the moon light.
No rain, no thunder, no storm can stop me flying.
Now you know….
…..how many wonderful memories I have of my school and my friends.
I am about to start my last year of junior school and my very favourite time of the week is my after-school photography club where I love trying different techniques, like multi exposure, to capture my memories
Now you know how London was shaped. Buried under hundreds of years of history, the city has awakened from its deep slumber. From narrow cobbled streets to towering glass constructions, history took its own toll London. But now – a new era has begun. At the heart of the city-centre, new structures have been built; including my school, City of London School for Girls.
Now you know the view of a Neurodivergent individual, the beaming lights and the blurry vision makes the world spin, you see the world as black and white because you don’t know what sense to focus on next, neurodiverse individuals tend to perceive and process the world around them differently to neurotypicals, not only is it black and white but loud and scary too.
Now you know, my relationship with my religion always gives warm and pleasant feeling, refreshing my thoughts and letting me lay content, so I appreciate going to see Islamic historic places, such as the one in the photo, known as The Haram Sharif. Going to these places gives me a sense of euphoria, and I will forever treasure that feeling.
Now you know I love the beach and sunsets. I love all the different colours in the sunset and all the fun I have on a beach. I have memories from my whole life with friends and family, where we are having the best time on the beach. The beach and sunsets together bring me joy.
Now you know my enjoyment of surfing goes beyond the sport as it allows me to be mindful, live in the moment and appreciate the natural beauty of the ocean. I always find being on the water allows me to let go of all the day to day stress and bustle that lingers in your mind.
