Sammia joined us from Kensington Aldridge Academy and studies A Level English Language & Literature, Sociology and Art & Design. We caught up with her to find out more about this fantastic venture and achievement. 

  • What were your influences? 

My influences were authors Jk Rowling and L. Frank Baum.

  • What inspired you to write your first book?

When I was younger I never liked how most of my childhood books ended, I enjoyed them but I wanted to change the endings, so I decided to write ones of my own. 

  • What are your books about? Is their a recurring theme or message?

My books are based on a mixture of every day life, different morals and every day situations. A reoccurring theme in my books encouraging words and songs. 

  • How would you describe your experience at St Charles?

My experience at St Charles has been amazing, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been for a long while, before I started I was hesitant but it ended up that coming was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. 

  • What are your goals once you leave College?

To attend university, travel, publish all my books within the next couple of years and hopefully get my dream job. 

  • What would you say to others passionate about writing?

What I would say to others passionate about writing is to never give up, no matter how long a break you have to take to get ideas, continue to pursue your passion, don’t let others opinions bring you down because if one person doesn’t like it, it doesn’t mean the next person won’t love it. Think smart and long term, At secondary school I went through a lot of stress and suffered hair loss, I was embarrassed to seek counselling but even through this I was still writing, for those who have their ups and downs they shouldn’t be embarrassed, getting help isn’t stigmatised anymore thanks to the champion of mental health Prince Harry.
