Earlier this year 11-year-old Mia Millin successfully applied to the Peabody Young Leaders Fund, which gives young talented residents a chance to create something special.

Mia produced, “Young Minds Poetry Collection”, written by herself and other UK primary school pupils, covering topics such as friendship, inspiration, peer pressure and emotions. The book won two prizes and was featured on ITV News and BBC’s Newsround.

She said: “I am so grateful to Peabody for giving me the opportunity to make my dreams of publishing a book come true. I hope other young people benefit from poetry as much as I have, from the feedback I have received, I think it certainly has!”
