My Five Minutes of Fame

http://www.worthingherald.co.uk/news/girl-writes-poem-about-having-autism-1-7766168

This article is my five minutes of fame, I think? My local newspaper interviewed me last week and then today the article was published online and I think it might be out in print later this week.

It’s kinda awesome, in a way, apart from the terrible photograph. My dad sent off the poem and then was like “oh, by the way, I just sent off one of your poems to the newspaper” and I was like “oh cool” without thinking much of it, because honestly, I didn’t think they would respond. But they did, and now I’m in the newspaper.

You can read it if you like but, if you’ve seen my Instagram, you will already have read the poem on there. πŸ™‚

  1. Wow congratulations! Getting on a newspaper was on my bucket list haha… I’m very proud of you, you must feel a little vulnerable, opening up to a newspaper πŸ™‚

  2. That’s so cool! Congratulations!
    I read the article and I love how genuinely caring your parents seem. Mine are exactly the same! I love having parents who try to understand autism, even if they don’t have it themselves.
