Yesterday I received a phone call from the Well Being Enterprises CIC letting me know that I have been successful with my funding for Positive You. Lead the Change helps projects by giving them grants to help the groups to expand.
This is a picture took by my Mum when I received the call, I am so happy to be a part of Lead the Change. I am so proud of myself and the fact I wrote it by myself and also with help around the money side.
What an achievement I still can't stop smiling when I think about it.
Two weeks ago Ella Performance Group performed Peter Pan at the Brindley in Runcorn. I played a Indian in the Indian scene, above this is me and my boyfriend Andrew in our Indian costumes.
The show had an amazing atmosphere I am looking forward to the next production.
This is my favourite book entitled "A Little Princess" which is a British children's novel by Francis Hodgson Burnett. it tells a story of a seven year old Sara Crewe and her father Captain Crewe who tells her that he has to go away and also he believes that Sara is a princess, she must go to America where it is safe for her where she will be attending the boarding school her Mum went to when she was Sara's age. Captain Crewe took his daughter Sara to the boarding school where the headmistress takes a instant dislike to, while Sara stayed there, Captain Crewe went away for a very long time.
Fours years on Sara is thrown to a luxious 8th birthday party by her friends which ends in great sadness where she finds out her Dad has died. The headmistress takes away all of Sara's possessions a part from her old dresses and a doll which was given to her from her Dad.
A Little Princess has always been my favourite book and film for a long time. I really like the charaters and the story which brings joy, Happiness in some parts but also particularly sadness when Sara was being abused by her headmistress and the way she was treated which is hurtful to watch but she did overcome it.
