Oakgrove Integrated in Derry/Londonderry, inclusively mixed in sex, ability and religious domination.

I only got an A in music, so that was what I was best at and so I stuck with it. 

4. Were you bullied at school? If so how did you overcome this?

Yes, a bit inside it and a bit more outside it. Music was what helped me overcome it, I even became cool!

Music.

Chicken curry, seeing my friends, catching up.

Chicken curry and rice.

9. If you had to go back to school again what would you change?

Nothing really, looking back.

Talk to an ambassador or teacher. Don't eat your problems or suffer alone.
