Matilda and her rings

Age

13

Matilda is my neighbour and friend. In primary school she was in my older sister’s class. Matilda has always loved to accessorise. When she was in primary school she would ‘personalise’ the uniform. Matilda wore friendship bracelets up and down her legs and arms. She had hundreds of fruit stickers stuck on the underside of her cap and she serrated the rim of her visor so it had a fringe. She is still an extreme accessoriser but has more resources to play with. Sometimes she wears ten rings. I really like Matilda as she is an interesting person who has fun with how she appears.
