Lily is a star achiever
WHEN Lily Allan was struggling with schoolwork after the death of her grandfather she found an unusual way to change her life – writing poetry.
The teenager from Yate took part in a programme run by her school, Brimsham Green, to help people develop their skills and self-esteem.
Now Lily's school work has been transformed, her self-confidence boosted and she has even had a poem published.
The change has seen Lily win the Prince’s Trust Educational Achiever of the Year award and left her teachers "incredibly proud".
