Once upon a time, there was a young woman called Jade. Unique, kind and generous of spirit; she is intelligent and awesomely beautiful.
I want to celebrate her success – she has been chosen from 1000’s of others to have her work displayed on electronic billboards across Brisbane, Did I mention she is a very talented author and editor?
Jade holds a double degree in Creative Writing / Public Relations and is completing her Master of Professional Practice Creative Writing. We are all so proud of her accomplishments.
Believe in yourself, Jade. You have an incredibly bright future ahead of you.
I could be her grandmother, but she always treats me as a peer. We laugh so much when we are together. We share our dreams and our fears. We have many interests in common. She never makes me feel older. We support each other when there are dark days. She has enriched my life in ways she could never imagine.
People come into your life for different reasons. Some stomp all over you leaving you bruised and battered. Others hold out a hand of support asking nothing in return. And then there are those who are always there – building ongoing relationships that feel as if they have been in place forever. Forever friends.
Her winning entry encapsulates who she is and how she sees the world.
“We are all equal. Yesterday, today and tomorrow.”
Congratulations Jade. We are all so proud of who you are and what you have achieved.
