My name is Meagan Rae Tan, I’m 13 and studying at School of The Arts (SOTA) Singapore. I wrote this story when I was 12. My writing is mostly inspired by ideas that flow into my mind at 3am in the morning. I love relaxing with music, binging anime and doodling.
I joined the YAS course last year, kudos to my mum’s encouragement. At first I was skeptical about joining as the course took place during my precious school holidays. However, I finally agreed, albeit reluctantly. I was absolutely not disappointed. It opened my eyes to the beauty of writing, and I developed a passion for it. It taught me that writing is a haven where I can express myself in any way that I want, where everything is possible. Now, writing has grown to be an important part of my life. So thank you YAS and mum for showing me how amazing writing is.
