Tom received this email today from a student in Australia. Kinda makes your day, doesn't it :) It's inspiring for us to know young people are so engaged with the world around them and care so much for others. I'm sure she will accomplish exactly what she sets for herself here.
You are amazing, Jemma! Thank you for reaching out to us. #Compassion #BeKind #BackToSchool

I know you must get millions of emails and mesages, but please I would just like to thank you for the work you have done, you have inspired me and I wish to be like you as I grow older. I have always dreamed to write a book about poverty and fill it with photographs taken by myself. I was born in South Africa and moved to Australia when I was three, but like you I have a memory of this woman carrying and weaved basket of potato/turnips on her head and holding her 3 yr old sons hand, her son was very malnourished and not in a state a regular child his age should be, and since then that thought had always stuck in my mind and I still have trouble trying to comprehend why is our world so unfair, that child and mother didnt decide to be trapped in poverty. I want to change that. I just want to let you know your book and work is amazing and i am truley inspired by it.
Thank you, you are amazing
