All the poems are a response to Charlotte's personal experiences and also from the world we all share. She dreams of uniting us all through her words and making us realise we are not set in stone.
Charlotte found comfort in writing growing up, it allowed her to channel her emotions and build her confidence has an individual. She hopes to pass on her creative writing abilities to young people, so they can also experience the benefits of creative writing. Furthermore she wants to educate the youth on creative career paths, from her own experience in the industry. Being an artist is a real career, not just a hobby.

Belka Books Press:
- Charlotte, what do you think makes a good story?
- A good story, is when a writer is being open, honest and vulnerable, in their creativity. People want to read books that are relatable, they need to feel they're not the only ones. This sense of familiarity draws readers close to a piece of writing.
