Nine-year-old Noel Naitetoi of Namelok Junior Academy in Kisamis, Kenya expresses her gratitude for Lift the Lid’s First Annual Poetry Competition held at her school.
Noel is the proud First Place winner for her poem “What Lies Ahead.” For her reward, she received $50 to put toward personal school supplies and fees and $50 to give to her class. As she expresses in her Thank You letter (posted below), giving new books to her class made her very happy. She says she is writing poems every day now!
This is Noel’s Thank You letter. We are encouraged by her sincere gratitude and look forward to holding the Second Annual Poetry Competition at Namelok in 2014
