My Poem Performance of “Once Upon a Twice”

Hi there. Last week, I was quite busy with the Once Upon a Twice online YouTube recitation contest.

Once Upon a Twice is a creative Jabberwocky-like poem written by Denise Doyen. The book tells a story of a young and adventurous but naive mousling called Jam, who gone through a thrilling experience of life.

So one day, I received an email from the author who got to know me through my action poems on Youtube. She invited me to join the contest, which I happily agreed.

Because the poem was so creative, I was motivated to compose music and songs to the poem too. It’s my first time composing a song by the way, and I really enjoyed the process!

Due to some busy events, I almost couldn’t enter the contest, which ends on 10th October 2009.

Luckily, my mom encouraged me and I was able to act out and upload the video at 3:30 pm 10th October 2009, Pacific Time.

Update (12 October 2009): Huray! I have been just informed that I am the international winner of the contest. Thank you very much to the author who has created such a wonderful poem. I really enjoyed creating the performance!
