Biggest Fan, pt. 6 by Heather Taylor

“Oof!” Neither of them truly knew who had grunted – him, her or his guitar? “I am so sorry!” The young man exclaimed, eyes widening as he saw the damage he and his guitar had just caused.

Watch Me Now by Mahvash Irshad | International Women’s Day Celebration

To the women in your life, Those words you do not say, Those ‘I love you’(s), and those hugs, Kept hidden, closed away.   Let them loose, Say them out loud; Tell them how much They make you proud.   Tell your mum that you’re grateful For all that she has done, That she, on… Continue reading Kind Word by Chiara Scaduto | International Women’s Day Celebration
