Nina Andersen, Founder of Community Senior Letters
Nina Andersen is a 16 year old student who founded Community Senior Letters.
Her inspiration for Community Senior Letters came from her first project, Community Senior Music, where semi-professional musicians performed concerts at various care homes.
Due to COVID-19, she has had to switch from musical entertainment to handwritten letters to keep the elderly connected during these unprecedented times.
Community Senior Letters aims to match primary schools to care homes in the same borough to provide human connection during lockdown.
This allows hope and happiness to be brought to the elderly residents at care homes, and for them to form wonderful friendships. Likewise, students are able to form friendships by unleashing their inner creativity as they send letters and drawings to the care homes.
Alongside her studies, Nina Andersen approaches various schools and care homes to get involved in this project, as well as creating and editing the website.
