I flew to New York in September with Save the Children and spent most of my time there in the dark. I worked really hard trying to do what I had been asked to do, head down, fingers tapping, rushing from place to place. It was SO exciting, I met some amazing people (some very famous!) and it was such a buzz to be working in this incredible city. Everywhere I rushed I felt like I was on a film set, it was a landscape so familiar and yet so alien to me.
I craned my neck and gazed upwards, twirling on the spot, trying to see the sky.
I was lucky to be with Liz who had done it all before and got me from place to place effortlessly. I would’ve been lost without her!
It was busy and bustling and I was bowled over by it
But I am a girl who loves space. My soul craves the sea and rolling countryside. I love gazing into the distance so, on the last day, I slammed my laptop lid, grabbed my bags and headed here
At last, I could see where I was…I looked down
And then I looked up and out, into the distance and it was breathtaking
