A triplet from Chatteris has written a prize winning poem about being one of three and how much her sisters mean to her
Back in October Tamba (Twins and Multiple Births Association) invited teenagers to write a poem or story on the theme of “Being a teenager twin/triplet/multiple” to coincide with Multiple Birth Awareness Week.
And judges chose Charley Elliot’s poem “Inspire” as the winner.
Charley, who is 16, said: “There isn’t much I can say about myself that doesn’t in some way involve my two sisters Phoebe and Kelsey. They have grown up beside me and despite the constant bickering we have developed much of the same tastes.
“We are all obsessed with netball and competitive when it comes to schoolwork. But the most important thing about this is that I wouldn’t change any of it. I love having them around. If they weren’t around I would probably be at a loss of what to do.
