It’s time to get inspired. Imagine needing to leave your home and go somewhere very different where you can’t speak the language, and start your life over… this is what Ireene Uwimana and her family had to do when they left Rwanda 13 years ago.

READ Ireene’s story here. And, then think about your own life. Is there someone that you know who has overcome great hardship to start their life afresh? If you can think of someone WRITE a story about them and their struggles.

If they are in your home or if you can call them, then INTERVIEW them. Ask questions about their life and write down some quotes. Once you’re happy with your story, then SUBMIT it to us for publication. Send it to or find out more about submitting your writing work here.

Finally, here’s a little bit of life advice. READ this Just Trendi blog: Be Kind.

Have a fantastic Tuesday, and don’t forget to let us know how you are doing in lockdown.
