My Personal Project idea was to research my Great Grandad as his first name (George), is my middle name. Due to never having the chance to meet him, I decided the researching him would be the perfect way to connect with and learn things about him to inspire me to live up to the amazing reputation he had.

Essentially, my Project is a book that will contain images throughout his lifetime as well as important stories and events that made him the respectable man he was. So far, I am in the process of designing and completing the book, I am using Snapfish to do this.

The number of stories, pictures and life lessons I have learnt through this whole project has surprised me. Learning about the many stories and seeing photos of him throughout his life I feel has really built a strong connection between me and my Great Grandad. Also, the life lessons he had, have made me want to be the best version of myself. The most stand out life lesson from him would be just how much competitiveness he shared for sport and how he always played with such sportsmanship and fairness.

I look forward to seeing what else I can find out!
