Inspirational Author Visit

Dolmades and pita bread were not the only challenges that Will Kostakis, author of The First Third had when growing up.

First becoming an author at just 19, Will came to Brighton Grammar last week to give a witty and inspirational talk and podcast interview.

Coming from a complicated background of Greek family relationships, The First Third was a tribute to his friends and family. The book is a culmination of stories, experiences and adventure. In our session with him, he talked about his journey on how he became a writer. He was writing chapters of his story which his classmates loved and asked for more. And that is how he began his writing.

To top off his visit, we interviewed Will for our UC Student podcast. What an awesome experience. So watch out for this podcast episode.
