#6 100 WC Saoirse- Maya

The gruelling task was done. Maya had been working on this dress for days. She was twelve years old and she and her family lived in poverty. She worked to ensure her family had enough money to buy food. The conditions in the factory were oppressive. Maya was forced to work long hours in the cold damp factory. Once the workers entered the factory the doors were locked. She received a miserable wage for the hours she worked. Her fingers were bloody from the needles. Maya looked at the dress and felt a pang of jealousy what fortunate girl would get to wear this dress ? she thought. The material felt like silk, smooth against her skin.

  1. Well done Saoirse.
    You’ve described the setting well.
    I can almost feel the oppressive atmosphere Mia is working it.
    I can so understand why she might have felt jealous. Life can seem so unfair at times.
    Keep up the great work.

  2. well done.

    I really like the bit where you said that she felt a pang of jealousy.

    to improve, i think that you could use some exclamation marks at the end of your sentences
