The young and technology
Lillie-Ann and what technology means to her
Interview by Zoe Tillotson
What does technology mean to you?
Technology enables me to do my schoolwork. I wouldn’t be able to write without it. It makes me independent and has allowed me to access my lessons easily during Covid and lockdown.
If technology could do anything, what you like it to do?
If I could wish for anything, I would like a teleporter to take me to Disneyland Paris or just Paris in general because I enjoy learning to speak French at school. I would also like some technological invention of some sort to allow me to walk so that I could learn to dance – ballet in particular – but all kinds of dance.
What has inspired you recently?
Musicals inspire me. Recently I watched Newsies on Disney Plus and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. I really liked the plot because it’s about a bunch of newspaper boys who go on strike due to unfair working conditions and low pay. I felt bad for them and had empathy and compassion for their situation even though I’ve never really experienced anything like that myself. Also, one of the boys Crutchie is disabled which is cool. The music in it is also really good and it’s got more dancing in it than the French Ballet Academy.
