In 2022, I won a National Silver Medal with Distinction from Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for a portfolio of my writing.
This included my unpublished novel "Awake, Awoke" and the first chapter of another unpublished novel, "The Negotiation War".
In June, I attended the award ceremony in New York City at Carnegie Hall, where I received my medal.
Of the twenty-nine winners of this award across all of Canada and the US, my short story "Forbidden Numbers" and two other winners were included in the "Best Teen Writing of 2022" anthology published by Scholastic alongside other award winning young writers.
I accepted a full scholarship to the Author Conservatory in May 2022, and attended my first writing conference, Realms Makers, in July, and am registered for this upcoming summer!
