English 10: Writing Portfolio
Catholic Memorial High School
My name is Shane Hewson and I am a sophomore in high school. In my English class we had to pick a
English, Irish or Scottish author, poet or songwriter to write about.I chose you because I am a big
fan of your music and as you can tell we have the same last name and we are both Irish. I was born
in America but I lived over In Westmeath for about 2 yrs because my parents are from Ireland.
“Vertigo “and “It’s a beautiful day” are two of my favorite songs. Like you say “Music can change
the world because it can change people”. I feel that people seeing someone like you reaching out to
the unfortunate makes them want to do the same.
Not only do I like your songs but I admire your humanitarian work in Africa and your efforts in
canceling debt of poor third world countries. It really inspires me to do something that can help
the unfortunate. I know it’s a long shot but it would really be a tremendous honor if you came to my
school for a visit to talk about all your tributes to the world. My school is Catholic Memorial in
Boston, Massachusetts and it would be greatly appreciated if your came.
