Are you musical?

Arusha Khan, 17

Yes. Music is my release from everyday troubles; it motivates me. Without it, I would feel hopeless. Some might say I'm not musical because I don't play an instrument, but it is a person's relationship with music which makes them musical. I enjoy all genres of music, even opera, but I love rock the most, and lyrics are the most important element to me.

Have Your Say

Support your friends in times of trouble

I'm writing in response to the star letter 'Give each other a hand with your studies'(Young Post, August 2).

I agree that we have to be careful not to upset our friends. We must always be aware of the feelings of others.

We should also support them if they don't do well.
