Sasha's digital story is about the importance of her friends in her life
I have always loved my friends ever since I have been young. When I was younger I used to like my friends so much that I hated it when they became good friends with someone else. As I grew older I went to high school and I found out the true meaning of friendship, which is when someone is warm, loving and there to encourage you and is there for you all the tough times. At the age of 14 I became friends with four other girls who taught me the actual meaning of friendship. After three years of being friends we decided to go on holiday together to the big capital city Paris on our own, this meant we had to be very responsible. We thought we would find it so hard to get on but we actually became more of a family than me and my actual family. My friends encourage me so much that I faced my fear of upside down rides and loop the loop rides. In the future I plan to stay in touch with my friends and be able to be as good of a friend to other people. Friends are life changing.
