Writing Competition Winners – Ella

Writing Competition Winners – Ella

In Autumn 2019 we held a writing competition for adopted young people on the theme This Is Me. We had some wonderful entries that were judged by our team and Miles Chambers, Bristol’s first poet laureate. Over the coming few weeks, we will be publishing the winners so do watch this space and read them all.


Ella’s Poem

“Ella, that’s me

I’m the anxious one

I don’t like being different

It feels strange.

Life is hard

Meltdowns I’ve had

That’s just how I act

I can’t stop myself.

I try to manage

But sometimes it’s hard

But I will get there.”


By Ella, aged 11.
