Expat teen scoops Spanish writing prize
• Chloe Madison Grubb won first prize in Coca Cola short story contest
A BRITISH expat teenager has been praised for her imaginative storytelling in Spanish.
Chloe Madison Grubb, from Salobrena, won first prize in eastern Andalucia in the Coca Cola short story contest.
The story – about an evil painter and a magnifying glass – saw her chosen to enter the final, alongside six finalists, out of 1500 entries.
The bilingual 13-year-old has now won a trip to Amsterdam, a tablet computer, plus a Sony laptop for her school, IES Nazari.
“I was really shocked,” said Chloe, who only had a few words of Spanish when she moved here from Buckinghamshire six years ago with mum Dawn, dad Graham and sister Erin.
Chloe will now take part in a creative writing course in Madrid where the finalists will learn to improve their entries for a chance to be placed in the top three.
