The other highlight of the University of Leeds Volunteering Awards was a performance by Leeds Young Authors...

Charmaine Riley, Saju Ahmed and Zodwa Nyoni recited their poetry and brought the Great Hall alive. They were inspiring, passionate and powerful young poets all with a strong personal message. I also picked up a copy of 'Journey of the Heart II' an amazing collection of poems and life stories written by the participants of the Young People in Public Care Language Project 2006-07.

I am constantly surprised by the people I meet and the places I go and it's wonderful to know the talent out there releasing the magic in our young people.
