Youth Speaks Champions!!!

Three girls with ambitions to change the perception of reading! Here's a bit about us all: Bella- An enthusiastic book worm, That's me! Evie- Think I can't finish a book in one day? Challenge accepted! Georgiana- I'll read anything! I love imagining. Whilst we try to balance our Performing Arts training, exams and not getting too crazy, we love to indulge in great books! From Jane Austen, Phillipa Gregory and Khaled Hosseini, we're willing to try any book which is why we love the Carnegie book awards! We like to gather most Tuesdays to discuss books and writing! Whilst we all do train at a specialist performing arts school, our love of books won't be diminished! So yes, we are just three young girls with big dreams, though we be little, we are fierce!
