Dogfriend

by Jules, age 12
Dogfriend Jules is a passionate person who has been writing stories since the age of six. In first grade, her reading and writing talent were recognized, and she was allowed to move forward with reading and writing stories in a group separate from those focusing on basics. Since then, she has developed a love for expressing her feelings through writing. Recently, she found a story she suspects is her best work yet and she vows to finish it. Jules incorporates anti-racism, anti-animal-cruelty, anti-homophobia and anti-sexism into her work.
