How did you first hear about online learning with Good Learning Anywhere?

I heard about online learning with Good Learning Anywhere from the Contact North representative in my town.

Did you have any struggles during your learning?  If so, how did you overcome them?

I didn’t have a lot of struggles with my learning.  The only troubles I faced was presenting my poetry during the Slam Poetry event, as my 5 written poems came from the heart.

What advice do you have for someone thinking about starting to improve their skills?

Don’t be afraid, and just be yourself.

What is your greatest achievement? Or what accomplishment are you the most proud of?

My greatest achievement while attending Good Learning Anywhere was facing my fears during the Slam Poetry event, and reading my work to all the participants.

What are your goals for the future?

To continue working on my creative writing.

Is there anyone you would like to thank for supporting you on this journey?

I would like to thank the instructor Nida, for appreciating my work in the Slam Poetry class.

Is there anything else you would like to share with people about winning this award?

Never give up hope, and continue on with your learning.

    I too hope you continue your writing. You have a lot to say, and you say it beautifully. Maybe you will have time to do the live GLA Creative Writing 2 courses,So You Think You Can Write, which starts in September. it would be great to have you be part of that course too.
