All my life, I’ve been totally hooked on books. This healthy addiction began all the way back in preschool, when I absolutely hated naptime. My only escape
from the horrors of sleeping during daytime was scavenging from the gigantic bookshelf sitting beside the beanbags… so I took upon myself the challenge of learning how to read.
Fast forward to kindergarten, where my teacher had me regularly read to the class. I devoured books morning and night and was always reading to my little brother, Taj.
Books truly are my world, and I don’t know what life would be like without them. I wouldn’t have as much to do in my spare time, and I would have none of J.K. Rowling, Neal Shusterman and Sarah Epstein’s
wondrous novels (to name a few).
However, flicking through books isn’t my only hobby. I also enjoy playing the piano, running around on the netball
court, writing, drawing and watching The Vampire Diaries. I also have
experience in public speaking and speechwriting.
Some of these skills assist me in my role as the Youth Ambassador. I have participated in the event since
kindy and I’ve always loved reading for a reason. Over the years I have toured schools inviting kids to join me in the MS Readathon, met some amazing authors and importantly, got to know people who are living with the condition.
Join me on my book adventure!
