In my video you can see how dangerous and lethal the Covid-19 really is. Families are suffering everyday as one or more of their family members are ill or dying. The song in my video is the Spanish version of the song “I will survive” which has become a sort of anthem for the Covid-19 pandemic. Some families are struggling and worried because one or both of the parents is working all day to save lives. This is where my inspiration came from, as my dad is a very hardworking doctor. He goes early in the morning to work and comes back late at night everyday. This is why I want to raise awareness as all the doctors and nurses are working and doing the impossible to save lives. If I am given the amazing chance to win, I would donate the £100 to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Alder Hey is an amazing Hospital which has saved thousands of children’s lives. I am a patient of Alder Hey and they are great with me. I would love to help and support Alder Hey in any way possible so if I do win, I will donate it to Alder Hey. I hope you liked my video and Thank you for this chance.
