At the beginning of this year, Year 12 Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong student Larrissa was thrilled to find she had won the 2020 Jenkins Award for her original music composition.

Rather than dwell on the disappointment of not being able to reunite with her ISCMS friends nor hear her piece performed, Larrissa decided to write another song – this time, to spread a message of encouragement, positivity and resilience to the Dulwich College International and ISCMS communities during this challenging period.
