Fly like Bobby Seagull

by Arisha Fatima (Yr 9)

Last week we went to see Bobby Seagull and I had an epiphany. I realised that even though I am a very ordinary girl from Newham, I am extraordinary in many ways. I realised that I can be who I want and my glass ceiling is set by me. I can do Maths and Computing just as well as others but in a unique way and actually that’s fine. I mean who wants to be sheep and vanilla really?

Bobby is also ordinary, but his outlook is extraordinary. He’s honest about his purpose, humble about his good fortune and most importantly comedic about his mishaps. He is human and hilarious and he made me happy.

So let’s all aim high and fly like seagulls and grow each other.
