I have been a fan of Sophia Bush for a very long time and I've always found here to be very encouraging, motivating and eye-opening. She was the one who made me get a further education, to make something out of my life. And she was the one who draw my attention to this amazing organisation. She introduced me to Pencil of Promise and by that she introduced me to Nith and Nuth and all those other children Adam and his organisation helped. When I bought this book I didn't think it would hold what it promised just because there have been so many books before this one and none of them affected me in that ‘Oh my god I really want to shout the name of the book on the top of my lungs from my roof and tell everyone about it’ way. But I was in for a massive surprise.
And by buying the book I made sure a child could recieve education for one day. Which is kinda crazy if you ask me. That something so small can do so much.
If you ask me this book is a must read for every person, no matter what age, who want to be the change in the world they want to see. Who want to do something that matters and help a child.
Thank you to Sophia and Adam for opening my eyes, for giving me something that I have missed for a very long time; passion. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And I will definitely do everything I can to support this amazing organisation and its cause. Let's build more schools, let's change more lives, let's make more children have that unique sparkle in their eyes and those gorgeous eye lightening smiles. And let's do it together!
