Muhammad Zia Shaik, a Grade 4 learner from Curro Aurora is well on his way to becoming a great poet. His poetry has already been published in newspapers in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.

'Every day, you see emotions in people everywhere, and some of them are sadly negative. I decided to write a poem to make people feel happy and positive and to help inspire change in the environment around us,' he said.

Muhammad draws inspiration from those close to him. 'The people who inspire me the most in life are my mom and dad. They inspire and motivate me every day to keep following my passion.'

He would like to pursue his poetry, his dreams are set elsewhere. 'I love my poetry, but my real dream is to become a scientist.'
