What to write about
This month’s theme is ‘My biggest achievement’. Think back – what is your biggest achievement? What have you done that has made you feel proud, that you would like to share with others? You could create content that tells the story of any achievement or proud moment you have had in the past – for example, how you coped with being in care, or how you dealt with moving to a new placement or leaving care. Perhaps your biggest achievement is passing your exams, starting a new job, or taking on a new challenge – it’s completely up to you!
