Mia joined the 14 week ultra education programme to become a young entrepreneur. Since self publishing her book Mia has sold out of her books twice (once at the ultra education business fair).
She also runs a poster business, which focuses on positive affirmations for young people.

Delena Thompson (Aged: 7 years)
Delena was first diagnosed with Alopecia universalis at 4. After having Alopecia for 2 years, Delena decided she wanted to share her journey and spread awareness. At 6 years old Delena wrote her first published book “ I am not my hair” sharing her experience with hair loss as well as explaining what Alopecia is about.
Delena always says she wants anyone who feels or looks different to know that they are not alone; they are loved and will always have a friend in her.
Delena wanted to write a book so she could share what it was like to lose her hair. Delena wants people to be aware of Alopecia and wants people to stop bullying anyone who has Alopecia or looks different.”

Helen-Jane Efesoa (Aged: 10 years)
Helen Jane, who has only just turned 10 is an author who recently launched her book on Bully. She is advocating against bullying. In her book 'The Magical Glasses', in her own words she says ' I would like to stand against bullying and show in my story how bullying can affect children'. One of her goals is also to encourage children in her generation to not give up on their dreams.
Ilhora-Lee Louison (Aged: 8 years)
Ilhora-Lee consistently shows resilience, kindness and creativity.
When she was 7, she started working on her Self-Development Journal to help children deal with their emotions and build a positive mindset.
Ilhora-Lee experienced a blend of emotions and feelings such as stress, sadness, loneliness, anger, lack of confidence, and misunderstandings when she arrived in England when she was 4. She could not speak English and she had to learn how to write, count and read. However, she has never hesitated to help or encourage anyone who feels down around her. Three years later, she had grown her circle of friends, she was able to express herself fluently in English and was feeling much better.
Despite these challenges, she showed great tenacity and embarked on a journey of self-development and entrepreneurship. Indeed, thanks to these uncomfortable experiences, Ilhora-Lee managed to gain many skills and qualities (such as confidence and eloquence) which allowed her to be inspired to design a child-friendly Journal.
This is why she decided to create five different versions of her journal to help and empower as many young people as possible. The aim of Ilhora-Lee's journal is to support young people’s development and help them learn strategies to improve their self-belief and self-esteem.
In order to spread her vision, she has been attending events to raise parents/guardians and teachers' awareness of children's mental health and personal development.
A month ago, after being asked what was special and precious about children, Ilhora-Lee paused for a few seconds and with a pensive look on her face replied "children are magnificent, they have powerful imagination".

Jayden Melius (Aged: 7 years)
Drive and commitment to inform, inspire and impact his audience deserves the utmost respect and recognition. He captured events vividly by recalling and retelling these experiences via written word (or could be text) with his peers and the wider community.
As an ambassador for Brixkidz he makes it his point of duty with any given opportunity to Evangelise. His writing is held at such an outstanding standard as to be published on the SEC website for the public and entire Seventh Day Adventist community to view. He exhibits an exemplary and diligent work ethic dedicated to going the extra mile to depict and describe events in a vibrant, and interesting manner engaging and encouraging the audience to learn more of God’s love.
To find such zeal, passion and enthusiasm from such a young diligent boy who’s love for writing and sharing God’s goodness is truly inspirational and admirable. I believe the time is due for him to be formally acknowledged and awarded for his significant contributions to the community through his writing.
He has also written about more events which he hopes will soon be published. His coach Craige Young wrote:
‘’He is far more mature than his age. I am always fascinated with how articulate and literate he is. As an educator working in the primary sector for over 20 , I can truly say his writing is at a very high level.’’
