Adesewa Oyinkansola

 

My name is Oyinkansola Adesewa (pictured). I am 11 years old. I love writing, drawing, painting, designing clothes, dancing, and modeling. I am presently a student of Yaba College Of Technology Secondary School, Yaba-Lagos. I started writing at the age of 6. My first poem book titled “Thoughts of a Child” was published when I was 8 years old through a writing contest. I participated and I did excellently. Presently, I still write and I have written more poems outside the ones in my book.
