"I tend to bottle all that up and try and ignore it, but there was so much going on I was like 'Hey, you're already on the verge of a mental breakdown trying ot decide what to do with your future. This isn't helping, so let's get it out'" – 17 year old Ruby Esther

Ruby Esther's spoken word piece 'I Normally Write Funny Poems' won this year's Word Up! competition.
