Author Visit – Sufiya Ahmed

St Wilfrid's LRC - Sufiya Ahmed visit

Award-winning author Sufiya Ahmed (‘Secrets of the Henna Girl’) visited the Academy on Wednesday 28th February to present to some of our Year 7 and 8 students.

Sufiya talked about her childhood dream to become an author and about her time working in the Houses of Parliament, which led her onto her journey to becoming a full time author. Students were then invited to ask questions, after a drama session where students dressed up to demonstrate an Asian bride’s henna ceremony! Before leaving, students were able to purchase a signed copy of her book.
