- Faculty & Staff
The Faculty congratulates Nakeeba Bowes, a first Computing student who received high commendation in the March 2021 short story competition hosted by the Philip Sherlock Centre for the Creative Arts (PSCCA) for her entry, ‘Summer Haze’.
‘Summer Haze’ details important scenes in the lives of two women. Imagine a coming-of-age story with of-age moments in between. These moments are overlapped in some way, and it is the audience that chooses how these scenes are overlapped based on their understanding and deductions. Nakeeba shared that she entered the competition to hone and showcase her writing abilities that morphed from what was initially considered a mere hobby during high school. In her own words, to be recognized “was a new and great feeling, especially since it was my first competition entered in this category. I made myself and my family proud, and this recognition has become added testament that I do have the skill, and I can indeed take this skill forward.” Nakeeba considers herself to be multifaceted, but primarily an avid writer and a lover of poetry and music.
All entries in the competition have been expertly voiced and produced as a part of The Brian Heap Creative Writing Podcast Series which began airing on March 28, 2021. ‘Summer Haze’ first aired on April 18, 2021.
