Eleanor Bower

My name is Eleanor Bower and I have helped with creating the illustrations for the children’s’ storybook. I have volunteered before in a few school in India, teaching children English and teaching them games to play. I volunteered to take part in this project as I saw this opportunity as valuable experience, not only working with a real client and brief but also being a part of a book which will go on to teach children about different religions which I think is important. What interested me most about the project was the story, and it’s potential to educate children. As well as this I love to paint and saw it as a fun project that I wanted to be involved in. My experiences on this project would definitely make me want to volunteer again, as I think it’s really important sometimes to do things just to help people, and not for personal gain.
