Emmeline Anthony is a student at Somerset College and performed this story as part of Storyfest 2020.
Her story 'When This Becomes Enough' tackles an issue I know I felt when I was in my teens. Why go outside when I am totally comfortable inside my room? My perfectly safe space.
I asked Emmeline, if her story was a song, what would the lyrics be? I then used her lysics to write the song in this episode.
Thanks so much to Andrea Lewis and the Storyfest team and to all the staff and students at Somerset College on the Gold Coast. And thank you Emmeline for writing and performing this story for us.
Thanks also to Jake Morton for the beats and samples and to Somerset students, Aleeza Tariq and Riddhi Athota for the introductions.
I hope you enjoy.
