Last week, two teen sisters, Julia and Emma Mogus, came to my school to tell us about an amazing project they started to bring books to aboriginal youth in the 49 communities of the Nishnawabe Aski Nation in Northern Ontario. In 2012, these girls collected and organized a way to send over 10, 000 books to these fly-in communties. They are also sending supplies like warm clothing, baby items, crafts and teacher resources.
Never underestimate teens! I was so inspired, hearing about their goals and dreams and what they have accomplished at the ages of 13 and 14. It makes me want to work even harder to achieve my own goals and to write better books.
If you want to know more about Julia and Emma and their accomplishments, visit them at the Books with No Bounds website or Books with No Bounds on Facebook.
You can also read more about them in this article about Books With No Bounds from The National Post.
What inspires you to keep on writing?
