What it is like to be an upcoming 13-year-old?


Preface: Today begins a series of collaborations, people who have inspired me and helped me through motherhood. Of course, it’s only right that I start with my biggest inspiration, the person who kept me going through some of the most difficult periods of my life, My Daughter.


Before I start I would like to say a few things about myself my name is Luella-Blu, I am 12 years old and I grew up in London. I’m known to be quite fussy in terms of food. But now since my mum and dad keeps on encouraging me to try new foods, the more I try and the more confident I get.

One of the things I like about living in Denmark is that everyone is so friendly and welcoming and it really feels like I have been here all my life. One of the other reasons I like living in Denmark is because I can go out with friends and everything is tidy and safe, there is nearly no litter in Denmark which is quite rare if you live in central or east London.

A reason I don’t like living in Denmark is because it’s too perfect, what I mean is that it feels too safe and not loud enough that is one of the things I have to get used to because I love loud noises whether its music or laughter.  I’m happy when there is a lot of things happening and is one of the things I miss from London but it is good to experience a change once in a while.

Right now, my Danish is getting better and it is good enough to communicate, I will be transferring to a new school in the next few weeks because I have passed through the introduction class to Danish. I feel like I have been really slow to learn the language but seeing the facts I guess I did do well considering I’ve only been in a Danish school for 5-6 months.

Becoming a teen you will experience changes mentally and physically and I am still going through those changes as a girl. One of the scariest things about puberty for me is that I feel like I don’t have enough time to know how to deal with this and that’s really scary for me. But one of the best things about this is that I won’t feel scared after this because I know it will be worth it. Also, I feel a lot less self-confident and I get a lot more embarrassed but my mum always says positive things about me the more I believe them and anyway now I feel a lot more confident than before.

My mum has always been uplifting and aspiring for me like a helium balloon most of my achievements have been because of her so for me she is the reason I am alive smart, manerfull, active and resilient.
