Dave Cousins, Author, visits Huxlow Science College
Year 7 and 8 students welcomed author, Dave Cousins to Huxlow Science College on Monday 1st April. He spent time talking to the students, answering questions and signing copies of his book, Waiting for Gonzo.
All students were captivated as he shared stories of his dreams and aspirations growing up, from visions of being an astronaut to goals of being in a band. He spoke of his stubbornness and determination and how that encouraged him and drove him on.
Throughout his talk, his love of writing was evident. Comic books at a young age and songs as he grew older eventually led to him writing a novel in his cold, dusty attic. Ultimately, the message that he left the students with was not to give up. You will find your “thing”, hold onto it and you never know where it will lead you.
