This initially started off as a project for my school. It’s the S.K Austin Award and it’s the biggest assignment that we get in year 5 and year 6. It is a very prestigious award at Claremont College as it is dedicated to one of the founders of the school.
For my school project, I had to choose a natural disaster and find an interesting way to present it. I wanted to select an event that no one else in my class would choose, so I went through a list on Wikipedia with my dad.
