Year 9 Leehurst Swan pupil Hattie was placed third in the junior creative category of the HART Prize for Human Rights, a competition for young people interested in global issues.
For her Geography homework, Hattie conducted independent research and produced a written creative piece entitled Girl, Wife, Mother to promote awareness of child marriage and period poverty in South Sudan.
Hattie travelled to London for the presentation. On arrival, she met Baroness Cox, who spoke before the prize winners were announced.
Hattie was presented with a signed copy of Baroness Caroline Cox’s book ‘This Immoral Trade’
