Featured Student Writer: Natalie Danckers

on March 26, 2012

ImageNatalie Danckers is today’s featured student writer.  Natalie is a junior at Libertyville High School in Illinois.  Natalie’s essay, “Sister“, was selected as a Top Ten entry in our Fall 2011 essay contest. When asked what inspired her winning piece, Natalie responded,

“‘Sister’ was inspired by, unsurprisingly, my own sister. She left for college this past fall and my essay is a description of what I went through as I attempted to adjust. As a writer and a person, I owe her so much. She truly inspires me daily and pushes me in all that I do. For me, writing is a way to connect to others and myself. By writing, I hope to share experiences that people can relate to or learn from; because writing is so important to me, it’s an honor to be chosen and published. In the future, I will to continue to write and be grateful to my friends and family, including, of course, my sister.”

Thank you, Natalie, for sharing the influence your sister has had in your life.  Congratulations again on being selected as a Top Ten Winner in our national essay contest.
