My small piece about the diary of Anne Frank was published in the Guardian as part of the identity themed takeover week. Lots of other fantastic pieces have been submitted by talented young journalists on themes as varied as slam poetry and the holocaust, so it's definitely worth having a look! http://www.theguardian.com/childrens-books-site/2014/aug/20/best-books-identity-teenagers-amnesty-teen-takeover-2014
In addition to this, if you're stuck for something to read this summer, look no further! The Guardian team put together a list of seminal books on identity, including two titles chosen by me. Other contributors include the authors Alan Gibbons, Bali Rai and Sita Brahmchari.
Also, if anybody has ever thought about volunteering at Oxfam; don't even give the decision a second thought, just do it! I've had a brilliant time at Bradford Oxfam this summer, it's been challenging, rewarding and at times surreal!
I also must apologise to the customer whom I accidentally locked in the changing room; I hope I haven't scarred you for life.
Anyway, this concludes my short update. Thanks!
