About my creative response

“I have been getting overwhelmed in my new school as my classmates don’t really like the things I enjoy and mostly play football and talk about Fortnite, so I got my idea for the competition.” 


When have you been ‘true to yourself’?

“I think it is important to be true to yourself because a world in which everyone is the same would be boring.”
