My name's Emma Coleman, I'm 17 and live in Leeds.

I used to go to Temple Moor High School and I am now at Thomas Damby College studying media.


My true story is about how I used to take a lot of time off school, without any real reason. How and why my attendance got lower by the year. Also how I used to go out and drink on a Friday and Saturday night.

Then I go on and talk about college and how I've made new friends.
