Introducing Our First Contributor — From Scotland
By Caroline McWilliams
Hi. My name is Caroline McWilliams.
I live in Glasgow, Scotland. I don’t have any brothers or
sisters. You’d think only children would be spoiled, but we’re not.
We are independent.
I am almost 10 years old. I like being that old — not so young
that I have to be taken care of all the time, just old enough to do
I am going in to Primary six (fifth grade). I go to a Catholic
school called St Aloysius’ College; it is in Glasgow. I live in a
suburb called Clarkston.
My best friend is called Jennie Tsui (pronounced Chou) she is
half-Chinese, half Scottish. My other friends are Marilisa
Scognamiglio and Jenny Innes.
Marilisa is half-Italian, half-Scottish. Jenny and I like to put
on plays together. We write them, and then we perform them to our
I like reading, writing stories, sewing, cooking, putting on
plays, typing, arty things, swimming, ballet, and playing the
violin. I started to learn the violin three years ago.
I’ve preformed in three concerts and at an assembly. I am now in
our Junior School orchestra.
My mum/mom is American, and I am half-American, half-Scottish. I
think writing is fun, and I hope you enjoyed my story.
Editor’s Note: Caroline McWilliams, our publisher’s niece, is
the first contributor to AZBW’s Corner For Kids. We welcome
her and look forward to more of her articles — possibly two about a
couple of the "best" watersports: swimming and water-balloon fights!
(But, that’s another story.) We encourage kids to write to Caroline
or to us here in Arizona with their own questions, comments, and
stories — especially those about boating, fishing, RVing, and other
firstname.lastname@example.org. You may use that address for either
Caroline or me.
