Young Author Scheme (YAS)

It was sheer coincidence that I chanced upon a copy of the Young Authors' Club story book at the bookstore and found it interesting. It then dawned on me that I could be just like one of those budding young authors. I was truly inspired. So here I am. Hope you like my story. You can be sure it will not be my last!”.
