Congratulations to Level 3 Photography student, Daisy Deevey, who took first prize in a City of Liverpool College 2021 Poetry Competition. Daisy’s winning entry entitled ‘My World’, is a thought-provoking and moving observation of how someone with autism might experience the world.
The competition, which was judged by established poets Helen Kay and Greg Kearns, gave students an opportunity to express their neurodiversity experiences through the medium of poetry.
The event was part of National Neurodiversity Celebration Week, which shines a spotlight on the strengths, talents and accomplishments of members from this community. It also sets out to promote acceptance of people who view the world from a different angle, and who make a great contribution to their workplace, communities and the world at large.
Daisy’s winning entry can be found below.
