Rhea is a Year 11 Student from Melbourne, Australia. She wrote this story in 2018 after being inspired by the stories of many refugees fleeing to Australia to escape their dangerous home countries. She enjoys creative writing, reading, baking and running in her spare time and wishes to continue her writing as she grows older. Her favourite authors include Marcus Zusak and Anthony Doerr. She hopes that this story is able to raise awareness for the growing and persisting refugee crisis and through this story urges us not to turn our backs on some of the world’s most vulnerable.
